HILLSVILLE — Talissa Huff could only save herself and her three dogs after her house caught fire Tuesday afternoon.
Her rental home at 2620 Birch Tree Road went up in flames at about 4:48 p.m., when she tried to stoke a fire she had going in a stove in the basement.
“I lost everything,” she said, while volunteer firefighters from the Hillsville and Galax fire departments continued to pour water on the house.
Huff even tried to go back inside and save her children’s baby pictures.
