VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — No one was hurt after an unoccupied home in the Kempsville area of Virginia Beach caught fire early Wednesday morning.

The flames were so intense that firefighters had to use a ladder truck for an aerial attack.

VBFD officials say it broke out around 2:30 a.m. in the 5000 block of Lobaugh Drive.

The fire was eventually marked under control at 3:23 a.m. and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
