MILTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Two firefighters have been released from the hospital after suffering heat exhaustion while fighting a house fire.
The home on Morris Court in Milton is now a total loss.
Firefighters say the fire started in the back of the house, and is not being deemed suspicious.
They say the family had just left the house within 20 minutes before the fire started, Saturday afternoon.
The American Red Cross has been called in to help the family.
Firefighters say the fire was tough to fight because the closest hydrant was about a mile away, and they had to shuttle water back and forth.
It happened at a home on Morris Court.
Firefighters say that due to the heat and extreme firefighting tactics, the firefighters were taken to the hospital.
According to the Milton Fire Department, the fire started under the back deck, and appears to have been caused by an electrical failure.
The house was already engulfed by time crews arrived on scene.
