CHINCOTEAGUE ISLAND, Va. (WAVY) — A house caught fire on Chincoteague Island Friday, prompting multiple fire stations to respond.

Firefighters got the call around 4:45 Friday afternoon to 5080 Wildcat Lane.

Officials say when they got on scene, crews found flames coming from a large, three-story house.

Crews had to rely on a draft site to supply their tankers due to an insufficient water supply, officials say.

The house was extinguished and crews remained on the scene to monitor hot spots.
