Fire destroys McDowell County family's home

Posted:

NORTHFORK (WVVA) - A fire leaves a number of people without a home Wednesday morning in McDowell County.

Dispatchers say around 2 a.m., a fire started at the home on Northfork Hollow Road.

The family was inside, but made it out safely. The fire also spread to a nearby abandoned structure.

Because of the low temperatures, the Red Cross was dispatched to pick up the family and take them to shelter.

Crews from Northfork, Keystone and Kimball fire departments responded to the scene. The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
