5 News Update 8:00 p.m. (3/16)
A fire burned a home in Monongalia County to the ground Saturday afternoon, and shut down a busy road while crews battled the blaze.
It started around 5:45 p.m. at a home on Grafton Road. That road was shut down for about two hours while crews worked to get the flames and smoke under control. However, firefighters told 5 News the home is a total loss.
Firefighters said three people were home when the fire broke out, but all of them were able to get out safely. Family members supposedly said they thought the fire started in the back bedroom.
At this time, officials said they aren't sure whether or not the blaze is suspicious.
Four different volunteer fire departments responded to the scene.
