CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) – Fire broke out at a home in the Deep Creek section of Chesapeake Tuesday afternoon, displacing the three adults who live there.

Firefighters responded to the call in the 1200 block of Tampa Drive at 1:11 p.m. They arrived to find smoke coming from the roof of the two-story home.

Crews called the fire under control less than 30 minutes later, with assistance from Portsmouth Fire-Rescue. Officials said a quick knockdown of the fire minimized damage.

An investigation revealed the cause was accidental, due to an electrical issue.
