Overnight Fire Destroys Home

amherst county logoAn overnight fire has destroyed an Elon home. Fire officials say crews from multiple departments were dispatched around 1 a.m. to 555 Montrose Road, where they found the house fully involved with the fire being fueled by winds. Authorities say county water does not run in the area, the houses are supplied by wells instead. Therefore, the water supply had to be shuttled to the scene. Sources say firefighters fought the blaze for nearly two hours before it was extinguished. Neither of the two people inside the house were injured. The fire is under investigation by Amherst County Public Safety.
