A 14-year-old boy died in an early Sunday morning fire in Spotsylvania County, said County Fire Chief Monty Willaford.

"When units arrived they found heavy fire coming out the front windows and door," Willaford said. "There was a lot more fire than you'd expect to see pulling up to a fire like that."
