CHESAPEAKE, Va. — Investigators are working to piece together what sparked a fire that consumed a home and left two adults displaced.

Chesapeake firefighters, alongside units from Virginia Beach, were called to a home in the 1600 block of Smoky Mountain Court a little before 9:30 p.m. Friday.

It was there they found heavy smoke and flames rising from a home.

It took crews a little more than half an hour to contain the blaze, but they were able to fully put out the fire by 10:04 p.m. 

Everyone inside the home was able to safely escape, including two dogs, and no one was hurt. Neighbors are helping the homeowners find a place to stay.

The cause is still being investigated.
