KEARNEYSVILLE, W.Va. - Fire destroyed a single-story home in the Fox Glen subdivision off W.Va. 9 Friday afternoon, according to fire officials.
Firefighters were hampered in their efforts by gusting winds up to about 35 mph, said Leon Catrow, assistant chief of the Shepherdstown Fire Department.
The design of the home also made it difficult to extinguish the fire, Catrow said.
The house was built around a mobile home, and it was difficult to get inside the trailer to put out the fire, Catrow said.
