Harrison County Emergency Officials said there was a structure fire on Monday.  It happened on Campbell Run Road in the Good Hope area at 6:30 a.m. 

West Milford Fire Chief John Elko said there was a woman and her child in the home at the time of the fire, but they got out safely.

The Lost Creek Fire Department, Jane Lew Fire Department, and West Milford Fire Departments responded to that scene.

Tankers from Nutter Fort Fire Department and Jackson's Mill also responded.  Elko said water was almost immediately an issue, because the home was far away from any hydrants.

Elko said that by the time the tankers got on scene, the fire had fully engulfed the home.  It's not clear at this time what caused the fire. Elko said the home is a total loss.
