Fire Breaks Out Overnight at an Albemarle County Home

Posted: Updated:

An Albemarle County family is facing a difficult holiday season after flames destroyed the second floor of their home Friday morning.

The call came in shortly after 1:00 a.m. for a fire in the 300 block of Bloomfield Road.  Fire crews from all over the county were called in to help fight the blaze that had engulfed much of the house.

It damaged the second floor and the roof, but firefighters were able to save a large portion of the home.  It took nearly three hours to get the fire under control.

"It took a lot of water, it took a lot of time to get it under control. There was a lot of fire when we got here, so we had to play catch up," said Chief Daniel Tawney from the Seminole Trail Volunteer Fire Department.

The homeowners were able to get out of the home before calling 911.  No one was hurt in the fire.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
