Chesapeake, Va.-  Firefighters were on the scene of a house fire in the 1800 block of Spar Street Saturday morning in the Western Branch section of the city.

According to dispatch the call came in at 10:00 a.m. When crews arrived on scene they found heavy smoke and fire coming from the roof of the home.

Crews were able to control the fire and no one was hurt, but embers from the fire caused a neighbor’s shed to also catch on fire.

No one was home at the time and there were no injuries in the second fire.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

The family of four is being assisted by the American Red Cross.
