Fatal Fire Buckingham County

The bodies of a juvenile and two adults were found among the debris of a Buckingham County house fire on Monday, Sept. 16, 2019.

Police have identified two of the three people who died in a Monday fire in Buckingham County, but authorities have not determined what caused the fatal blaze.

Earl J. Booker, 56, and his wife, Colette N. Booker, 45, and an unidentified juvenile died in the fire in Dillwyn, according to the Virginia State Police.

State police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said state law prohibits the release of information about the juvenile until investigators determine if a crime was committed.

Crews were called to the fire in the 20300 block of James Anderson Highway at 4:54 a.m. Monday.

Fire departments from Dillwyn, Buckingham, Toga and Arvonia responded to the scene and found the home engulfed in flames.
