Firefighters are trying to figure out what sparked an early Friday morning house fire in Albemarle County.
The call came in at 1:07 a.m. and nine fire departments from the area responded to the call on Bloomfield Road. When firefighters arrived, they saw fire coming through the roof of the two-story home. There are no hydrants in that area, so water had to be shuttled in. The family got out before firefighters arrived.
"It took a lot of water, it took a large amount of time to get under control. There was a lot of fire when we got here, so we had to kind of play catch up," said Chief Daniel Tawney, Seminole Trail Fire Department.
Damage is estimated at $750,000.
Firefighters are still trying to determine the cause of the fire.
