Virginia House Fire Causes Heavy Damage

A fire Saturday afternoon in Virginia left one house heavily damaged.

Authorities said the home was almost destroyed.

She said the flames started in a converted garage and spread into the attic.

No occupants were found upon the initial search.

The couple and their daughter who lived there managed to escape with their cat before firefighters arrived, authorities said. Two people are displaced and being assisted by the Red Cross. One was discovered alive and one was deceased.

Crews remained on the scene for several hours to ensure the fire was out. No injuries were reported.

Crews were called to the home on Hartzell Road after neighbors and motorists passing by noticed flames coming from the living room, according to the police report. The cause of death was ruled as smoke inhalation.

The name of the victim has not been released. "Install working smoke alarms on every level of the home and in each of the bedrooms".
