SHERILLS FORD, NC — A family from Sherills Ford is thankful firefighters were able to save some personal mementos after a fire ripped through their home.

The fire destroyed the home on Peninsula Lane Friday morning.  Firefighters saved an American flag and family photos.  The family says they recently did more than $100,000 in renovations.

“I’m no the cry or break-down type, but this is just so surreal,” said homeowner Michael Tonzola.  “I just can’t believe it.  I keep looking at it and thinking maybe I’ll wake up and this won’t be real.”

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
