Hampton, Va. – Hampton firefighters were called to the scene of a house fire over the weekend, officials tell NewsChannel 3.

It happened on August 17, 2014 around 8 p.m. Firefighters responded to the 100 block of Seminary Ridge, and found a one-story home with flames in one room and smoke throughout the home.

Occupants were out of the home as crews arrived.

The fire was extinguished in approximately 30 minutes after crew members checked the interior and attic space for any flame extension.

Fire investigators have determined that the fire was accidental due to careless cooking in the kitchen.

The Red Cross assisted three residents of the home.

No injuries have been reported.
