RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Fire investigators are looking into the cause of an overnight house fire.

It happened just before midnight on North 30th Street.

Investigators say a smoke alarm alerted the couple who lives there.

They then called 9-1-1.

The fire started in the attic, which is just above one of the front rooms of the house.

No one was injured.
