An Albemarle County family lost its trailer home early Saturday morning after a devastating fire.
The fire broke out around 3:15 a.m. Saturday on Diamond Court in the Southwood community.
A child ran to a neighbor's house to report the fire, saying his mom was inside.
One person was taken to the University of Virginia Medical Center for unknown injuries.
Crews say the fire started with a power strip in the living room. The home is considered a total loss, with damage estimates around $45,000.
