A structure fire at 385 Terry Lane in Keysville displaced a husband and wife from their home Monday morning.

According to Lynn Duffey, chief of the Keysville Volunteer Fire Department (KVFD), volunteers received the call around 9:43 a.m.

“The house did sustain substantial smoke damage,” Duffey said. “They can’t live in it right now, but it will be repaired.”

Duffey said the quick response from the fire departments saved the house from total destruction.

Fire departments that responded, in addition to Keysville, included Drakes Branch, Meherrin, Charlotte Court House and Bacon District.

Duffey said there’s no word on the cause of the fire.
