North Longview house fire leaves family of five homeless

A raging fire in Upshur county last night has left a family of five homeless.

Fire crews were called out to the fully involved blaze around 2:00 pm yesterday in the 7500 block of Green Hills Road near Glenwood Acres.

That's north of Longview. The fire burned the home literally to the ground.

Investigators say a passing aircraft actually spotted the blaze and called it in. Luckily, no one was injured.
