Bedford Co., VA - ABC 13 crews were at a house fire in the Thaxton area Tuesday afternoon.
Fire crews say a woman was at home on the 1300 block of Union Church Road when the fire broke out around 2 p.m., but she didn't realize the house was on fire until a passerby noticed smoke from the roof.
The woman was able to get out safely.
The house is a total loss.
The Red Cross is working on a place for the homeowners to stay.
UPDATE: The woman's husband told reporter Angela Hatcher the suspect dragged his wife, Melissa Cochran, out of the shower, by her hair, naked into the front yard. James Cochran said the man entered the home through their basement door.More >>
