Authorities are trying to figure out what caused a condemned house in Lincoln County to burn to the ground.
It happened just after midnight Tuesday at a house on Scites Ridge Road in Midkiff.
Lincoln County 911 dispatchers said when fire crews arrived at the scene the house was fully involved. It almost caught a neighboring home on fire, but firefighters were able to keep it from spreading. Crews from Guyan River, West Hamlin and Harts all responded. Emergency medical services personnel also were at the scene.
Dispatchers said the Lincoln County Sheriff's Department arrested four people at the home in July on methamphetamine-related charges. The house was condemned and vacant.
No word on how Tuesday's fire started. The West Virginia State Fire Marshal's Office will investigate.
