DANVILLE, Va. (WFXR) – Crews responded Tuesday night to a house fire in Danville.

The Danville Fire Department got the call of a structure fire just before 6:30 p.m. When they arrived at 157 Wood Avenue, they found a small one story house with fire at the back of the home. Sixteen firefighters found the fire extended from the basement to the attic of the structure.

No one was inside of the house at the time.

The fire took around two hours to get under control. The house sustained major fire, water, and heat damage and the building has been condemned.

The cause of the fire was investigated by the Fire Marshal’s office and determined to be incendiary.
