"Everything is gone. Everything we owned," Resident Krystal Hutton said. She had lived in the house for about 15 years. Until just recently, she lived there with her husband, mother, and two boys. The house went up in flames last Wednesday. She has lost the place she called home with a baby due just weeks away.
"We had everything we needed for the baby so far, it was here in our room. Now it's gone," Hutton said.
The fire is one of four in this section of Roda Road in the last year and a half. Now, investigators are looking at arson.
"It's just been a pattern, and there's some areas that we've investigated that points to some possible suspicious things that we're looking at," Appalachia Deputy Fire Chief Travis Anderson said.
News 5 found out the fire department has responded to three fires at the house right next door to Hutton's in the past year and a half.
"We've noticed that the fires are not that big. Usually it's to one room, just like the house next to us that when we got here it was just to the CD, what we call the CD corner of the structure," Anderson said.
Without insurance, this family is left with little hope of recovering their losses.
"The worst part of it for me was my dad's ashes were in this room here behind me. That's where the fire started. That's the one thing that meant the most to me," Hutton said.
Virginia State Police is handling the investigation.
