NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - Fire broke out at a Norfolk apartment complex Thursday afternoon.
An electrical problem inside one of the apartments in the 1000 block of 36th Street off Killam Drive sparked the fire, according to Capt. Michael Hicks with the Norfolk Fire Department.
The occupants were not home at the time. They arrived home to find the fire.
Capt. Hicks said it was a small kitchen fire, but it did enough damage to make the apartment unlivable. The Red Cross will provide assistance to the mother and daughter who live there.
The Fire Marshals Office also responded to the scene.
Firefighters quickly got the fire under control shortly before 3 p.m.
There were no reported injuries.
