New details are emerging about a fire that destroyed a trailer in Mount Solon late Tuesday night.
On Wednesday, the building was discovered to be a classroom for a children's Bible Study group.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but no injuries were reported. Investigators were seen taking photos and examining the scene to find out what started the fire on Wednesday morning.
The burnt building belonged to a Weekday Religious Education group, and was feet from the playground at North River Elementary School.
Mount Solon Fire Chief Jeremy Kiracofe estimated damage to be around $10,000, and things like chairs, desks, and televisions were destroyed.
Crews responded to an emergency call around 10pm Tuesday, but Kiracofe said there was little crews could do.
"These kinds of trailers burn pretty quickly, within 10 or 15 minutes of when the fire starts. There was one wall standing, but other than that, it was pretty much a total loss," he explained.
The Augusta County director for WRE said they are meeting with an insurance agent Wednesday afternoon, and then talking with the state program director to find out what to do next.
