Neighbors help save family in Chesterfield house fire

Family safe after house fire in Chesterfield

CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WWBT) - A family is safe after their home caught fire early Tuesday morning.

Crews were called to the home on Ironhorse Road around 12:30 a.m. after a neighbor reported seeing flames coming out of the roof.

Everyone made it out of the home safely, but a cat has not been accounted for.

It took about 30 minutes for crews to get the fire under control.

Neighbors Tamia Morgan and Nya Haley say they were driving home from the movies when they spotted the fire.

They said they “were blowing the horn” and making loud noises to wake up the family.

A cause of the fire has not yet been determined.

The Red Cross has been called in to assist the family.
