SURRY – An early morning blaze Sunday claims one life in Surry.
Fire crews responded to a house fire on Surry Road around 5:00 a.m.
They worked to knock down the flames, but the building was quickly engulfed.
When the home was safe to enter, authorities say they found what appears to be a body, but that person has not yet been identified to the public.
Fire Chief Richard Black says the construction of the old farm house made fighting the fire a challenge.
