Virginia Beach firefighters, along with auto-aid from Norfolk Fire Engine 4, responded to a multifamily fire yesterday afternoon in the 800 block of Zircon Court in the Diamond Springs Condos complex. Units arrived and found heavy fire showing in the rear of a building containing four condos.
While attacking that fire, a second unit down the court began to erupt in flames, which was quickly contained and believed to have affected one condo.
Two dogs were able to escape, but a neighbor caught one of them and a police officer apprehended the other.
The fire was under control within 30 minutes and marked out after a couple of hours.
It is not clear how many people were displaced.
No civilians or firefighters injuries were reported.
The fire's cause is under investigation.
