HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) – Investigators say “careless cooking” sparked a house fire Sunday in Hampton.

Assistant Chief Jeffrey Pereira with the Hampton Division of Fire and Rescue said crews were called to the 100 block of Seminary Ridge around 8:30 p.m. Firefighters saw flames in one room of the one-story home, and smoke throughout the residence, according to Pereira.

Everyone was out of the home when crews arrived, and no one was hurt. The Red Cross is now helping the home’s three residents.

Investigators determined the fire was accidental, and caused by cooking.
