SUFFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- Emergency crews battled a house fire Friday evening. 

The fire happened in the 6000 block of Spinnaker Cove Court just after 7 p.m.

Firefighters had to use a small access space in the garage in order to crawl 15 to 20 feet under the house and put out the fire. 

The house only suffered minor smoke damage. 

No one was injured, and two adults have been displaced. They will be staying with friends while the home is repaired.
