HENRICO, Va. (WWBT) - Much of a home is reduced to ash in the Elko area of Henrico County after a fire early Monday morning.

Crews were called to the 6700 block of Saltwood Court just before 3 a.m. and found flames shooting from the front and side of the building.

A family of five was waiting outside when firefighters arrived, and none were injured.

An hour after crews arrived, the flames of the fire can still be seen coming from the roof.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
