A six-year-old Harrisonburg boy is dead after fire rips through his home!

Fire crews responded to 1265 Hillcrest Drive in Harrisonburg shortly after 11 o'clock Monday night. When they arrived, they discovered that a woman, her child and another man who lived in the house were outside. But the woman's six-year-old son was still inside.

Firefighters entered the home. After approximately 10 minutes, they brought the little boy out of the house. He was taken to Rockingham Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The boy's name is not being released at this time. The investigation into what caused the fire will continue on Tuesday.
