CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) — Six people have been displaced after a fire damaged four apartment units in the South Norfolk section of the city Sunday night.
Chesapeake officials say firefighters were dispatched to the Sanderling Apartments on Parkside Drive around 8:30 p.m.
Firefighters say the fire was extinguished by the building’s sprinkler system in a first floor apartment of the two-story building. Water from the sprinklers are what damaged the three other apartments.
A malfunctioning heater in the first floor apartment is what caused the fire, officials say.
There were no injuries reported from the fire and the Red Cross is assisting those displaced.
