The Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause of a fire that destroyed as Philomont home on Monday.
According to Loudoun Fire-Rescue, the fire was reported just after 2:25 p.m., Feb. 25 on Greggsville Road. Although the first units arrived on the scene in less than three minutes, the two story, single family home was heavily involved in fire that was quickly spreading to other portions of the home. Water was trucked to the rural site by tankers and also pulled from a nearby pond. High winds contributed to the spread of the fire to the adjoining field and fence row. The fire was brought under control within 40 minutes.
Two adult residents were displaced and were able to stay locally with friends.
The damages were estimated at $450,000.
No injuries were reported.
