CHATHAM, Va. (AP) - A Southside Virginia home designated as a national historic landmark has been severely damaged in a fire.

The Danville Register and Bee reports (https://bit.ly/2oM8nTu ) the Philip Craft House in Pittsylvania County burned late Tuesday.

The house was built between 1801 and 1819. A newer wooden addition was completely destroyed, but an older brick portion was still standing.

Pittsylvania County Fire Marshal Steve Bowman tells the paper he was no reason to suspect foul play but he is waiting until the rubble cools to continue the investigation.
