WARREN COUNTY – A home in the Shenandoah Farms area of Warren County was destroyed by fire Monday morning, according to officials with Warren County Fire and Rescue.

A media release from Warren County Fire Chief Richard E. Mabie’s  office  says that  at  9:16 a.m. Monday, Warren County Fire and Rescue Units were dispatched for a reported house fire at 439 Young’s Drive in Shenandoah Farms.

The release states that, “Fire and Rescue units arrived on the scene to find a single story, single family home with fire throughout the first floor and through the roof.”

No one was home at the time of the fire according to Chief Mabie.  It took firefighters about 30 minutes to bring the blaze under control, with firefighters remaining on scene for several hours to ensure the fire was fully extinguished.

The lone occupant of the home has been displaced as a result of the incident; he is receiving assistance from the American Red Cross.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the Warren County fire marshal’s office.  There were no reported injuries to firefighters or occupant. The fire caused an estimated $180,000 in property and contents damages.

Firefighters from Warren County Fire and Rescue responded on the call with mutual aid assistance and 22 personnel.

Clarke County provided a Tanker truck to assist with extinguishing the blaze  and Fauquier County (Upperville) provided an Engine and Tanker on scene.
