PITTSYVLANIA COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Firefighters responded to an early Monday morning fire that left a home in Pittsylvania County a total loss.
Blairs Fire and Rescue says a call came in about a structure fire at approximately 4:55 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 20 in the 9100 Block of U.S. Highway 29.
When crews arrived, they found the house fully engulfed in flames. Firefighters say they entered the back of the home and didn’t find anyone inside.
The department says fire command determined the structure was unsafe, so first responders backed out to fire the fire from the outside.
Members of the Pittsylvania County Sheriff’s Office, Chatham Fire, and Dry Fork Fire assisted Blairs Fire and Rescue.
Fire officials say nobody was at the home when the fire started, but the residence has been deemed a total loss.
The fire now is being investigated by Pittsylvania County Fire Marshalls office.
