DANVILLE, Va. (WFXR) — First responders spent more than four hours at the scene of an early morning residential fire at a Danville home on Saturday.
The Danville Fire Department says crews were dispatched to a report of a structure fire at 129 Campbell Street at 3:56 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 12.
When units arrived at the scene, the department says they discovered a two-story residence heavily involved in the fire, as well as two structures on either side that were being exposed to heavy flames. However, when crews arrived, all occupants were reported to be outside of the central building, fire officials say.
Crews reportedly used a ladder truck and multiple hose lines to bring the fire under control.
According to fire officials, four engines, a ladder truck, two chief officers, a safety officer, and a fire marshal responded to the scene, where crews remained for approximately four and a half hours.
The department says there were no reports of injuries following the fire, which caused minor damage to both neighboring structures. However, fire officials did not disclose the amount of damage sustained by the main residence involved in the fire.
The Fire Marshal’s office is investigating the cause of the fire, the department says.
