Morning Fire Damages Condos at Wintergreen Resort

Posted: Updated:

A condo building is badly damaged after a fire at Wintergreen Resort Monday morning. The call went out shortly after 6:00 on Laurelwood Road on the mountain at Wintergreen.

Two people were home at the time, but nobody is hurt. Investigators think the fire started in the fireplace, and crews say even though it was cold and we had snow on the ground, it did not slow them down.

Wintergreen Fire and Rescue Chief Curtis Sheetz explained, "We had dealt with that (snow) yesterday so everything was chained up and ready to go, we knew we would be fighting ice."

Several fire agencies helped out with Monday morning's fire. Three units have fire damage, and two have smoke damage.
