HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

A family of nine has been displaced following a house fire in Henrico County, Saturday.

Firefighters were called to the 4900 block of Taos Lane at about 3:15 p.m. A 911 caller reported a bedroom was on fire and everyone was evacuating.

Once on scene, Henrico firefighters discovered flames coming from a second floor window. Crews were able to keep the fire contained to that bedroom, but we're told there is heavy smoke damage throughout the rest of the home.

Two adults and seven children, ages 8 to 17, were inside at the time, but managed to get outside and escape injury.

The Red Cross is assisting at this time, while the Fire Marshal works to determine the fire's cause.
