Fire damages house in Burlington

A fire damaged a residence in Burlington over the weekend. Chief Ryan Vaughn of the Burlington-Fayette Fire Department said the fire damaged a converted mobile home on County Road 120 Sunday afternoon.

The cause of the fire has not been determined but Vaughn said it appears to have been accidental. The fire started in the living room area of the house. One female was home at the time but escaped without injuries.

“We’re still not sure what it was (that started the fire). There are a couple of things that it could have been,” Vaughn said. “It seemed like it started on the couch.”

Burlington-Fayette, Chesapeake/Union and South Point fire departments responded to the fire.
