VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – A kitchen fire sparked Friday at a senior living facility in Virginia Beach.

Valdez said the fire was in a kitchen in one of the units, and was extinguished by the sprinkler system. One unit is now uninhabitable due to water damage, and the resident will need to be relocated.

Everyone was able to get out safely. Valdez said two residents were evaluated on the scene, but both refused treatment.
