At least two people are displaced from their home following an early morning house fire in Moneta, authorities said.
Moneta Volunteer Fire Department President Jeff Pauley said crews from five jurisdictions responded to a fire call about 12:45 a.m. in the 2000 block of Flint Hill Road, near Staunton River High School.
When the first crew arrived on scene at 1 a.m., the entire right side of the house was burning, Pauley said. Crews took about an hour to bring the flames under control.
According to authorities, no one was injured in the blaze and crews had extinguished all the fire by 4 a.m. The Bedford County Fire Marshal’s Office is still investigating the cause of the fire. A person who dialed 911 initially reported the flames started on the front porch.
Pauley said it remains unclear just how many people were living in the house at the time. He said a woman and her son may have provided housing there for other people.
“Apparently they had a couple of older folks who kind of rented rooms,” he said. “There were at least two, but there may have been as many as four.”
