CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WTVR) – Charlottesville fire investigators are working to determine what started a fire that burned more than a dozen University of Virginia students out of their home on Monday morning. Everyone inside the Wertland Street home was able to make it out unharmed, according to a report on Newsplex.com.

The fire started on the front porch of the home, Charlottesville Fire Chief Charles Werner told Newsplex.

“It’s insane. Honestly, it’s like a movie at first, and then you realize, wait a minute, this is not a movie,” said Adarsh Solanki told Newsplex. “This is actually my car literally on fire. So, it’s very weird. Very jarring.”
