PATRICK COUNTY, Va. (WDBJ7) -- Two people in Patrick County are dead after their home was destroyed by fire, but authorities have not yet speculated on the circumstances surrounding their deaths, according to a report from the Patrick County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies responded to a call reporting a possible shooting incident around 8 a.m. Wednesday, a post on the sheriff's office's Facebook page said. While en route to the scene, deputies learned that the residence at 1249 Dan Valley Farm Road was fully engulfed in flames.
Multiple fire departments from throughout the county responded to the scene and extinguished the fire, according to Sheriff Dan Smith. Smith said the home was totally destroyed, and a search of the debris uncovered two bodies.
The residents of the home were identified at Ronnie Glenn and Carol Ann Terry, 1249 Dan Valley Farm Road, but the sheriff’s office did not confirm whether the bodies recovered were the Glenns. Smith stated in the release that it could take a “substantial amount of time to make positive identification.”
Smith went on to say that there was evidence to suggest there had been a domestic dispute before deputies were called to the residence.
The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information is asked to call Investigator Brian Hubbard at (276) 692-6512 or Smith at (276) 692-7012.
