Fire destroys Lexington B&B, 40 people escape thanks to young boy

Fire-ImageAbout 40 guests escaped a fire at a Bed and Breakfast near Lexington. Officials say the large fire started at the Good Place Farms Bed and Breakfast in Rockbridge County around 10:30 pm Saturday night. The dozens of people escaped thanks to the quick thinking of 10-year-old neighbor Ashton Dunford, who saw the smoke and warned everyone inside. The building is a complete loss. The owner, Justin Peery, believes the fire started in the furnace room. The fire is still under investigation.
