VIRGINIA BEACH - Fire damaged a duplex in Va. Beach late Thursday.

Crews got the call just before midnight about fire in the 200 block of 61st Street.

'The fire was discovered by a woman who alerted her husband and they got out,' Patrick Seigh with Battalion 9 told 'Then they called 911.'

He said there was a lot of smoke and flames coming from the second floor and attic and it took about an hour to get the fire under control.

Firefighters stayed on the scene into the early morning and investigators will return later Friday to determine how the fire started.

No one was hurt.
