SUFFOLK — Three people were injured in a blaze at a Suffolk home in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Suffolk Fire & Rescue crews responded to the 3600 Block of Sleepy Hole Road at 12:38 a.m. When crews responded, heavy fire and smoke was coming from a large, two-story home.
Two people were outside of the home when crews arrived. Both experienced critical burns.
“Due to the distance off the roadway and the advanced care provided the two critically injured patients, the structure became well involved,” stated a release from Suffolk Fire & Rescue.
Both patients were transported to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with life-threatening injuries. One firefighter was injured during the incident, officials said.
The cause and origin of the fire is under investigation by the Suffolk Fire Marshal’s Office.
