MATOAKA - A fire leaves one home destroyed and sends one firefighter to the hospital. It happened just before 8:00 Saturday night on Culvert Road in Matoaka.  The home is a total loss, and a first responder was injured when a nail went through his leg.  He was treated and released from the hospital Sunday morning.  Matoaka fire chief Steven Sommers say the fire was so bad and the road was so questionable, they could not get their trucks all the way up to the house.  He says the cause is undetermined at this point, but they do believe it was suspicious.  The State Fire Marshal's office has been notified.  Three departments responded to the incident.
