One house is a total loss and another is damaged after a fire Friday night. Five departments came out to the Smith Mountain Lake area to help. We're told the home in the 400 block of Carrs Point Lane is destroyed. And a home next door has damage to the garage and breezeway. No one was hurt. Firefighters say they have not determined the cause of the fire, but do not believe it's suspicious.
The Franklin County Public Safety Director says the owners were at the house, just minutes before the fire started.
He says it was their summer home, and the family came to make sure it was okay during the cold weather. They left before the fire started.
