HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

Two adults and two children are displaced after a fire broke out at a home in Henrico's Northside.

Crews received calls about flames coming from a home in the 8400 block of Chamberlayne Road just before midnight on Saturday.

Firefighters battled bitter temperatures and icy roadways on their way to the scene. When they arrived, they found a single-story home with flames coming from the back.

They started battling the fire from the inside but then moved to the outside to due to the volume of the fire. Firefighters then moved back inside once they were able to knock out most of the blaze.

The people who live in the home were asleep and woke up to the smoke alarm. No injuries were reported.

Crews were on the scene for 11 hours due to heavy fire found in the attic, the cold temperatures, and icy equipment.

The fire has been ruled accidental due to improper disposal of fireplace ashes.

    FIRST ALERT WEATHER DAY: Strong storms possible

    Tuesday, January 23 2018 9:10 AM EST2018-01-23 14:10:22 GMT

    A strong cold front will be moving through central Virginia on Tuesday morning. Showers are likely with the potential for some thunderstorms as well. While widespread severe weather is not anticipated, there will be strong enough dynamics in the atmosphere such that a few of these storms could turn severe with damaging wind gusts being the main threat. Even an isolated tornado can't be totally ruled out.
