WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Significant flooding in White Sulphur Springs Thursday knocked a home off of it's foundation and it caught on fire.

The burning house was seen floating down Howard’s Creek.

Howard’s Creek, which runs through the town, came out of its banks following several inches of rain during a short period of time.

At one point, the intersection of U.S. Route 60 and Interstate 65 at Hart’s Run looked like a lake.

A White Sulphur Springs resident posted on Facebook Thursday night.

“Please pray for our neighbors. They are trapped in their attic with small children. Our other neighbors are on their kitchen counter..it has washed away the barn..cars..buildings. .flooded houses..My sister has lost her pets…it is devestating…please pray for our small town.”
