Red Cross Helping Family of Five Following Fire

Stanley - UPDATE: 4:20 p.m. 2/2/2014
The cause of the fire has been released.

The American Red Cross is providing disaster relief assistance for a family of five displaced by a fire Saturday morning on Judy Lane Extension in Stanley, VA.

The Red Cross is providing the family with financial assistance to help with meals and lodging, and will continue to coordinate recovery assistance.

When the fire department got on scene just after 9 a.m. Saturday, three out buildings were on fire and flames were damaging the family's home. They were able to save the house, but all the outbuildings on the property were lost. The Stanley Fire Chief says about $5,000 in damage was done.

The family can't stay in the house because power was lost during the fire. They were home at the time, but they were able to escape without injury. Investigators say the fire began when ashes from a wood stove that had been placed too close to a building ignited.
