A massive house fire sent emergency crews scrambling this morning in Washington County, Virginia.

Just after 3 a.m., the call for help came from the 15000 block of Wilderness Road in the Lowery Hills Subdivision, just outside the Bristol, Virginia city limits.

No word yet if anyone was injured.

Washington County, Virginia Fire and Rescue called for backup from three other departments including the city of Bristol, Virginia.

11 Connects’ Dana Wachter is at the scene to provide live updates on 11 Connects at 5 a.m. and 6 a.m..

Update at 5:49 a.m.:

11 Connects’ Dana Wachter is at the fire scene. She reports the 4,000 square feet home is engulfed in flames. Several firefighters escaped the burning home after almost getting trapped inside. That’s forced firefighters to pull back and tackle the fire from the outside.

One person was taken to the hospital with an injury, but we don’t have specifics about this right now.

Update at 7:05 a.m.:

11 Connects’ Dana Wachter reports firefighters believe the charred shell of the home could collapse.

The man at the home who was taken to the hospital is back at the fire scene after being treated for smoke inhalation.
