Fire forces woman from Chesapeake home

CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) — An early morning fire at a home in Chesapeake’s South Norfolk displaced the woman living there, according to firefighters.

Just after 2:15 a.m. Sunday, firefighters rushed to the call in the 1200 block of Algona Road, where they found heavy smoke coming from the single-story home.

Crews got the fire under control within about 15 minutes, according to Captain Scott Saunders. The fire had spread from the kitchen to living room, and the rest of the home sustained heavy smoke damage.

The woman living inside got out safely, and was not hurt. She has made other living arrangements for the time being.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but Saunders said it is not considered suspicious.
