Fire destroys Hanover home while family is on vacation

HANOVER, VA (WWBT) - A Hanover home went up in flames, Wednesday night, as the family-of-four was in Florida on vacation.

Firefighters had not been notified of the immediate fire, as the home is in a rural area. Crews ultimately investigated the house the following day, in the 14200 block of Country Sky Way in Beaverdam. When firefighters arrived, they found the remains of the home smoldering within the foundation.

The family returned Friday. Some rescue pets also did not survive the fire.

The incident is under investigation.

Here's a list of fundraisers to help the family:

Clothing donations are also being accepted:
Men's adult medium tops, men's size 32 x 32 pants, men's size 10 shoes
