BEDFORD, Va. (WSET) -- Two people are without a home after a fire ripped through their home Saturday morning.
Bedford fire crews responded to the 10300 block of Falling Creek Rd. for a reported structure fire. Emergency officials say a neighbor reported the fire just north of the intersection with Ephesus Road around 11 a.m.
Officials say fire units started arriving at 11:22 a.m. and reported that the home was fully involved in fire with flames through the roof. Fire crews say minutes later the structure started to collapse.
Fire officials say the small log cabin-style house, estimated at about 900 square feet, and its contents were a total loss.
The two adult residents were not at home at the time and are now staying with friends.
Fire officials say there was no insurance on the home. They say two nearby vehicles were also damaged from the fire.
There were no injuries to any firefighters.
The Fire Marshal’s Office says the fire likely started at or near where a woodstove was in use, but the extent of the fire damage to the home kept them from being able to identify the specific cause of the fire.
The Huddleston, Moneta and Forest Volunteer Fire Departments, along with Huddleston Rescue Squad and EMS and support personnel from Bedford County Fire & Rescue responded.
