Early morning fire rekindles about 9 a.m.
Firefighter from Pinch and Malden responded to a fire early Tuesday at 961 Rutledge Road, a Kanawha County dispatcher said.
The fire was reported at 2:35 a.m. and one person was transported to St. Francis Hospital, the dispatcher said.
Rekindling was reported just after 9 a.m. when firemen returned to the scene of the blaze, he said. C.W. Sigman, Kanawha County fire coordinator, said the house was destroyed. Firemen were dispatched again to the scene due to a fire burning in a basement or cellar area that was difficult to reach, he said.
