GLENWOOD — Two suspicious fires early Wednesday morning are being investigated by personnel with the West Virginia State Fire Marshal’s office.

Jennings Page, chief of the Valley Fire Department, said his department was dispatched early Wednesday morning to a car fire on Hannan Trace Road. The car, an SUV, was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived and destroyed. Shortly afterward, Valley firefighters were then dispatched to a structure fire, also on Hannan Trace Road.

Page said like the car, the home was a total loss and a vehicle parked at the home also received damage. Assisting Valley on the three-alarm fire were firefighters with the Winfield and Milton fire departments.

According to Page, no one was living at the home though it was being used for storage. There were no injuries as a result from either of the fires.

At this time, the causes of the fires remain undetermined with the fire marshal’s office investigating, Page said. Also investigating these fires, the Mason County Sheriff’s Department.

Anyone with any information can call the department at 304-675-3838.
