KEGLEY, W. Va (WVVA)-- A house burns down in Mercer County.

It happened on Howrey Road in Kegley around 12:30 AM Sunday.

Firefighters say when they arrived, the home was fully engulfed in flames. It was a total loss.

Originally, neighbors believed the homeowner was inside at the time the house went up in flames. Firefighters say that after an investigation, they discovered she was not there.

Her family members, who did not wish to appear on-camera, said Sunday morning that she was safe and staying with family.

East River, Matoaka, and Bluestone Valley fire departments answered the call early Sunday morning. 

There is no word yet on the cause of the fire, which is still under investigation.
