Crews battled the fire until it was under control around 5:30 a.m.  

Red Cross is now assisting the family who were all able to escape unharmed.

Reporter: Charles House II

HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- Former President Bill Clinton will be campaigning for Democratic candidate for Virginia governor, Terry McAuliffe, at James Madison University next week.

It is a sold out event. The Democratic office in Harrisonburg offered tickets to the public.

The tickets were handed out in less than 24 hours.

The office offered latecomers an alternative.

"I was the first person to come in here and they didn't have any more tickets, but but I am going to volunteer on Tuesday, see what I can do to help, and hopefully still be able to see the event," said Thomas O'Connor, a Quantitative Finance major at James Madison University.

The event will be held on campus at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, October 29.

Waynesboro Cancels Halloween Event

Reporter: Garrett Wymer

WAYNESBORO, Va. (WHSV) -- There's only one week till Halloween, but some kids in Waynesboro might have to find a new place to get candy.

The city's "trick-or-treat trail" event has been canceled.

The trail allows kids to trick-or-treat through Downtown Waynesboro, but this year, the work being done along many of the city's sidewalks has scared off the event because of concerns about safety near the construction sites.

There is another option, "Avante has offered downtown businesses to come and put up a booth at their event on Halloween, so folks that maybe were going to come down here might want to go up and see them at Avante," said Kimberly Watters, with Waynesboro Downtown Development.

Watters said her office didn't want to have to cancel the event, but with the streetscape work, she said they didn't have much of a choice.
