Family of three displaced after total-loss house fire

Posted: Updated:
AUGUSTA, VA (WWBT) -

A family of three is looking for a new home after a fire destroyed their Augusta County home.

Investigators are still trying to figure out how the fire started, but the home is now a total loss. Firefighters say the blaze was hard to put out because there were no hydrants in the area Saturday night.

In place of hydrants, the firefighters had to use tanker shuttles to supply water.

Family friends helped them move cattle and other farm animals off the property yesterday.

The family will begin cleaning up the debris today.
