NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Norfolk fire crews rescued a dog from a house fire Tuesday night.
It happened around 7 p.m in the 1500 block of Shipp Avenue, according to Battalion Chief Julian Williamson with Norfolk Fire-Rescue.
“Upon arrival firefighters reported smoke and flames visible from the second floor. Firefighters advanced fire hose into the structure and found fire on the second floor, spreading to the third floor,” Williamson said.
Officials say two adults and three children got out on their own, but firefighters had to go in to save the dog.
Crews were able to put the fire out in about 20 minutes, and no one was hurt.
Williamson said the smoke alarms did not go off. The cause of the fire is under investigation, and the family has been displaced, due to fire damage.
