Fire Destroys Halifax Home


A Halifax house was declared a total loss following a fire Monday morning, according to a Halifax Volunteer Fire Department spokesman.

Firefighters responded to 4093 Ball Park Loop Monday at 10 a.m. when a neighbor, Eva Womack, called 911 after seeing smoke coming from the front door of the house and hearing smoke detector alarms from inside the house.

When firefighters arrived on the scene they observed heavy smoke billowing from the single-story brick house. Once inside they found fire in a back bedroom, the spokesman said.

Halifax responded with one truck and four firefighters. They were assisted by Oak Level Volunteer Fire Department with two trucks and six firefighters and South Boston Fire Department, also with two trucks and six firefighters.

Rhonda Anderson, who lived in the house owned by Woodrow Goode, was not at home at the time of the blaze, the spokesman said.

Firefighters remained on the scene for approximately two and a half hours. Fire officials estimated damages at $150,000, the value of the house.

No one was injured, and the cause of the fire is unknown, the spokesman said.
