Officials in Danville are still investigating after a body was found inside a burnt home.

Firefighters got the call just before 1 a.m. Wednesday.

They said by the time they arrived, the roof had collapsed and flames were shooting 30 to 40 feet in the air.

It took hours for fire crews to get those flames under control.

After the fire was out, crews found a body among the rubble.

Police said they were told that Margaret Libby Moore, 37, lived at the home. They have not yet confirmed the identity of the victim.

Officials said State Police arson investigators and the State Fire Marshal are assisting in the investigation.

Firefighters said the home is a total loss and once the investigation is complete, what is left of the home will be torn down.
