DANVILLE, Va. (WDBJ) - Three people have been displaced temporarily by a house fire in Danville Sunday morning.

Danville Fire crews were called to the fire at 100 Hayes Court about 9:30 a.m. June 13. They found smoke coming from all sides and the roof of the single-story home, and determined everyone was safely outside.

Crews extinguished the fire, which was based in the basement and caused heavy fire damage to the basement and smoke damage to the main floor.

The Red Cross helped find temporary shelter for the occupants.

A Danville Marshall’s officer determined the cause of the fire to be improper use of electrical equipment.
