A fire this morning near Naruna has destroyed a home and a motor home.
Shortly before ten, fire crews from Gladys and Brookneal responded to the 16 hundred block of Maddox Road.
They found the home fully engulfed in flames.
It was too late to save it.
A man and his three children reportedly lived at the home, but no one was there at the time.
Officials say it will be a couple days before they can look through the home to determine what caused the fire.
