NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Norfolk Fire responded to a mobile home that caught fire on Wednesday afternoon.

The call came in just before 3:30 p.m. for a fire in the 1300 block of East Little Creek Road.

Fire crews reported heavy fire when they arrived on the scene.

Three people from the residence were outside when the fire department arrived and no injuries were reported as all occupants were able to safely evacuate.

As of 4 p.m., officials reported that the fire was under control and it did not spread to other trailer homes.

The cause of the fire was accidental and cooking related, according to officials.

While working this fire, Norfolk Fire and Rescue says a car went over a water supply hose, damaging it. This caused a leak, which could have impacted the response. The department issued a reminder Thursday that it is not only dangerous, but also illegal to drive over a fire hose in the road. If you see a fire hose, select a different route or wait until it is removed from the roadway, but do not drive over it.
