SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A person was displaced by a two alarm house fire in Suffolk Monday evening.
Firefighters were called to the 200 block of Clay Street at 6:38 p.m. Crews got to the scene seconds later to find heavy fire on the second floor and spreading to the attic.
Firefighters began battling the blaze inside, but because of smoke, had to start over from outside the home. The fire was marked under control at 8:19 p.m.
WAVY viewers Tim Lester and Steven Martin sent 10 On Your Side video of the fire they took from a helicopter above the scene. The video shows a large plume of smoke in the sky.
No one was at the home at the time of the fire and no one was hurt.
The Red Cross said in a tweet that they are assisting an adult displaced by the fire.
The fire marshal’s office is working to determine the cause of the fire.
