Mercer Co. home destroyed by fire

ROCK, W. Va (WVVA)-- A home is destroyed by fire Monday.

It happened in Rock, Mercer County off Little Rich Creek Road.

Bluestone Valley Fire Chief Tim Farley says the blaze began around 6:30 PM. When crews arrived, the home was 75% engulfed in flames, he said.

One woman was home at the time, but she got out of the house before crews arrived and was treated at an area hospital for smoke inhalation.

The home is a total loss. The cause of the fire is still unknown but Farley said it doesn't immediately seem suspicious.

Crews dumped 10,000 gallons of water on the fire from tankers, before pumping more from a pond to fight the fire.

Bluestone Valley, East River, Matoaka, and Montcalm fire departments responded to the call.
