FAYETTE COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Three people who attempted to break into a home Friday in the Hico area of Fayette County are wanted, according to information from the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department.
It happened just before 2 p.m. Friday along O’Possum Creek Road, about a mile from U.S. 60. A young child who was home alone at the time locked herself in a room and set the family dogs loose to confront the attempted burglars.

No one was hurt during the incident.
