CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Firefighters are battling an early-morning house fire on Swanage Rd. in Chesterfield.

As of 7 a.m., the fire was not under control.

A neighbor called 911 around 5:45 a.m. When firefighters got to the scene, they saw flames shooting from the roof and windows. An 8News crew saw smoke pouring from the home and windows shattered on the first and second floors.

No one was home at the time of the fire. The house was under renovation, according to officials, so the family was staying at a hotel.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
