MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A family of 12 was being assisted Friday evening by the American Red Cross after a fire caused about $150,000 in damage to their ranch-style home south of Martinsburg, according to Berkeley County emergency officials.
No one was injured in the blaze, officials said.
The fire at 371 Cardinal Drive, west of Interstate 81 near the community of Tablers Station, W.Va., was reported about 5 p.m. and began in the addition of the single-story wood frame home in Valley View Acres, said Russell Carpenter, South Berkeley Volunteer Fire Department's assistant chief.
Carpenter said the cause of the fire was under investigation. The West Virginia State Fire Marshal's office was contacted to investigate.
Firefighters had to set up a tanker shuttle to get water to the scene of the fire because there were no hydrants, Carpenter said.
