2 alarm fatal house fire. Corn field on fire behind house. 1000 gallon propane tank on fire as well. As 1st alarm was being struck out. Unknown subject drove rapidly into garage of house. Confirmed fatality found by firefighters. This is a weird one.

Mutual aid responses from Washington County, Berkeley County, City of Martinsburg and Loudoun County. Operations on Tac 1 and Fire Command 1. Patch up on Reg 2 Fire.

This was a really odd fire. It started off fully involved then someone drove up into the garage and they found them dead a short time later. There also were reports of multiple subjects trapped in the house when the box was struck out. I did not hear any active rescues on the radio. It's possible there are more fatalities.

I could see the thick black smoke from the rear of my house. It's not that far away from me. I didn't want to go up there and get in the way.
