CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) — A family of six was displaced Thursday night after fire ravaged their Deep Creek area home.

Chopper 10 flew above the two-alarm house fire in Chesapeake, and the video shows just how bad the damage was to the home in the 3300 block of Daystone Arch.

Flames broke out just after 5 p.m., and firefighters arrived to find heavy fire coming from the two-story home. Additional crews had to be called to the scene, and together firefighters from multiple jurisdictions brought the flames under control by 6:20 p.m.

Three neighboring homes sustained fire damage, as well. Vinyl siding melted on the two houses next door and flying embers started a fire on the back porch of a third house.

No one was injured. The displaced family — five adults and one child — is being provided with “comfort items” by American Red Cross volunteers.

The cause of the fire is still being investigated, according to Captain Scott Saunders with the Chesapeake Fire Department.
