Person died after Feb. 14 house fire on New Jersey Avenue in Norfolk


NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — One person died and another was injured after a house fire on Feb. 14 in Norfolk.

A Norfolk Fire-Rescue spokeswoman says the call for the fire came in around 6:45 p.m. for a two-and-a-half-story home in the 600 block of New Jersey Avenue. That’s in the Colonial Place neighborhood.

Fire crews say they found two victims, who were taken to a local hospital. Firefighters confirmed to 10 On Your Side on Feb. 22 that one of those people had died, but didn’t have additional information.

The initial report from fire crews said that the two occupants were “trapped on the second floor” where the majority of the fire was found. However, after crews arrived, they found that one of the occupants already got out of the home.

The cause of the fire was still under investigation as of Feb. 22.

WAVY’s Kayla Gaskins will more updates on this story coming up later today.
