BLUEFIELD, WV (WVVA) A house fire in Bluefield forces emergency workers to close down a section of Bland Street.

The two-story home, located on Ellis Street, caught fire around 2:27 p.m. on Thursday. Firefighters had to block a section of Bland Street so they could use a fire hydrant on the opposite side of the roadway. It was shutdown for nearly two hours.

People living inside the home were able to get out safely and no other injuries were reported.

The main body of the fire was put out by 2:45 p.m. The home suffered extensive damage. A cause of the fire has not been determined.
