Crews Battle Early Morning Blaze

A family’s house on Tiffany Lane in Marshall County was destroyed in a fire early Thursday morning along Big Grave Creek Road.

According to Justin Stocklask of the Moundsville Volunteer Fire Department, four people in were in the house at the time. No injuries were reported.

Crews responded to the scene at about 1 a.m. about a mile off of Big Grave Creek Road. Stocklask said the fire was under control in about an hour and there were no significant problems putting out the blaze.

The Marshall County Tanker Task Force also responded to the fire to supply tanks of water to the rural address.

“Out that far, we don’t have hydrants,” Stocklask said. “We have a fill site and we fill water to a dump tank and shuttle waters so we have a water supply.”

Officials with Moundsville VFD said a space heater might have caused the fire, but the incident remains under investigation.
