POWHATAN, VA (WWBT) - Authorities in Powahatan County are investigating the cause of a fire that destroyed a building off Route 60 this morning.

Flames broke out around 5 a.m. in a garage on a farm in the Flat Rock area of the county. Crews say they had trouble getting water to the area to fight the blaze.

The farm owner ran a business out of the garage. He is devastated at the loss, but says he does plan on re-building.

While he does have insurance, the owner says it won't be enough to cover the cost of rebuilding.
