CASTLEWOOD, Va. -

A family is without a home after a fire destroyed their mobile home.

It happened  on Old Temple Drive in Castlewood, Virignia. Russell County emergency officials tell us one of the family members contacted crews after she heard a sizzling sound and saw smoke coming from a breaker box.

The family is staying with their daughter until the home is repaired or replaced.

The Mountain Empire Chapter of the American Red Cross is providing aid to the family.
