VIRGINIA BEACH -- Three people escaped fire in their Virginia Beach home.
Crews were called to a townhouse on Arthur Avenue, off Rosemont Road, around 2:45 a.m.
The fire damaged the middle unit and caused lesser damage to the ones on either side, officials said. The fire was put out about an hour later and then crews remained on the scene to make sure there weren't any hot spots and to work with the investigator.
Investigators were working to determine what sparked the fire.
The Red Cross said it was helping the three with lodging, food and clothing assistance.
