WEYERS CAVE, Va. (WHSV) - Two adults and one infant are displaced in Weyers Cave after a kitchen fire. According to Augusta County Fire-Rescue Deputy Chief Bryan Mace, the cause of the fire is still under investigation.

“Bystanders stopped by to put water in that and threw it in the door to try to put the fire out. The guys got here; they pulled lines, went inside verified nobody was in here, they put the fire out, searched open the place up so, right now, looks like the main body of damage is in the kitchen,” Deputy Chief Mace said.

Mace says the home is full of smoke and heat damage, making the apartment unlivable. Adjacent tenants in the apartment complex say this is the first time they’ve seen anything like this in 16 years of being residents.

Multiple units were dispatched to the 3100 block of Lee Highway at 7:06 Friday evening, and Augusta County Fire-Rescue confirmed that no injuries or fatalities are reported.
