A Strawberry Plains residence was destroyed by a three-alarm fire that also damaged the home next door, New Market Volunteer Firefighters reported early last Thursday morning.

Fire trucks arrived at 3151 Burnette Road within nine minutes of the 12:33 a.m. call, but the 1,800 square-foot structure, which was being used for storage, was already engulfed in flames, New Market Capt. Sammy Solomon reported.
