CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) — Four people were displaced by a two-alarm house fire in Chesapeake Wednesday.

Firefighters were called to the 1300 block of Poindexter Street at 5 p.m. They got to the scene four minutes later to find heavy smoke coming from a two-story home.

Shortly after crews got to the scene, a second-alarm was called because of the extreme heat. Firefighters worked for nearly three hours to extinguish the fire. It was extinguished at 7:43 p.m.

Fire officials say most of the damage was contained to the attic, but the home has smoke and water damage throughout.

No injuries were reported.

The Red Cross is helping the three adults and teenager who were displaced.
