An 8,000-square-foot home in the Manakin area was destroyed by a fire Tuesday morning. At 8:10 a.m., fire crews responded to a call for a structure fire in the 500 blk of Joe Brook Court, in the eastern end of the county. Crews arrived at the scene to find the attached garage of the home heavily engulfed in flames with the fire spreading throughout the home. The residents were inside the home at the time of the fire. They were able to get out of the home safely along with their pets. “The fire actually spread from the roofline of the garage up into the roofline of the main house and into the main house and the second and third levels,” Interim Goochland County Fire-Rescue Chief Eddie Ferguson said. "There was an explosion on the fire scene where large amounts of roofing material came off the top of the home," said Ferguson. "That’s still under investigation and we’re still looking into that.” The cause of the fire is undetermined, officials say.

More than 15 units responded to the blaze including the Huguenot Volunteer Fire Department, Hanover County Fire-EMS and Powhatan Volunteer Fire Department Company 4.
