Crews investigate Stanley home fire on Monday, home is a total loss

STANLEY, Va. (WHSV) – Stanley Fire Chief Terry A. Pettit reported that the Stanley Fire Department responded to a structure fire involving a home at 6:56 a.m. Monday morning.

The house was located at 427 Al Good Drive in Stanley and is owned by Mrs. Elizabeth Howard, formerly of Manassas, who was due to move in on Monday. The contractors had been renovating the house for several weeks.

Chief Pettit said the fire was going through the roof of the house when firefighters arrived four minutes later and it took nearly thirty minutes to bring the fire under control. Firefighters remained at the scene for almost three hours to ensure the fire was extinguished.

Pettit also said the house was a total loss and the damage was estimated at approximately $400,000.00. The fire started in the attic, but the exact cause is not known at this time and is under investigation. A 2005 Honda Civic parked in the driveway was also totaled and Pettit said the house and car were insured.

Five units and 19 firefighters from the Stanley Fire Department responded to the call and were assisted by a tank truck and crew from the Luray Fire Department. A Page County EMS unit also responded, but no injuries were reported. The Stanley Police Department also assisted with traffic control.
