Harrisonburg Family, Students Perish in House Fire

Harrisonburg, VA- The home of the Page family erupted in fire last night, killing all four members of the family and four local college students who were in the house at the time of the tragedy.  Fire spread through the interior of the building before firefighters reached the scene.  Preliminary investigations into the cause of the blaze point to a slow leak from an older model gas furnace.

A spokesman from Rockingham Gas has put out a statement reminding everyone to have their gas furnaces inspected annually, and if they smell a leak, to report it immediately.
