A fire that destroyed a two-story, unoccupied house in Elliston on Wednesday night is under investigation.
Elliston Volunteer Fire Department Chief Clyde Hodges said a call came in about 10:30 p.m. about a fully involved structure fire on the corner of Brake Road and Calloway Street. Hodges said crews from Roanoke County assisted.
No one was injured in the fire, and crews returned to the Elliston station about 2 a.m.
"It was a total loss," Hodges said. "Just a small amount on the back of the building was still standing."
The house has been vacant for some time and does not have power, making the fire suspicious, Hodges said.
