FALLING WATERS, W.Va. - A home in the Marlowe Woods subdivision was destroyed by fire Friday morning.

No one was home when the fire started at the home of Earl and Sharon Clevenger, at 1506 Ashton Drive, said Bedington Fire Co. Chief Robbie Robinson

Robinson said firefighters from Bedington got the call at 6:33 a.m. and were on the scene at 6:51 a.m. By that time the house was already a total loss, he said.

"There was nothing except the foundation," he said.

About 30 firefighters from companies in West Virginia and Maryland fought the blaze, he said. Fire crews did not leave the scene until 1:30 p.m., Robinson said.
