Toms Brook Fire Kills Two

Two are dead in yesterday's early morning fire in Toms Brook.

Shenandoah County Fire Marshal David Ferguson says crews arrived to find the house on Jessica Place already fully engulfed in flames.

Two people were inside, assumed to be the residents, 81-year old William Dartnell and 86-year old Kikuko Dischleit.

Ferguson ,says dispatchers were alerted to the blaze on Jessica Place at 5:29 a.m. and units from Toms Brook,Strasburg and Woodstock along with the Shenandoah County Department of Fire and Rescue put out the fire within an hour.
The fire heavily damaged the house so crews had to stabilize what remained of the building before the investigation could begin.
