A fire that killed two people in Virginia Beach has been ruled accidental.

It happened back in April at a condo complex on Shore Drive near the Lesner Bridge.

Firefighters say the fire started on the first floor and quickly spread.

Ben and Pat Joyce died in the fire.

The couple had been married for 62 years.

Fourteen units at the condo were damaged or destroyed.
