Investigators say it is too early to tell what caused the fire.
Charlottesville's fire marshal is investigating the cause of a two alarm blaze at an apartment building.
Firefighters got to the scene on Cleveland Avenue around 7:30 p.m.
A spokesperson for the city's fire department said crews found heavy fire coming from the windows of an apartment. Investigators believe the fire started in the basement before spreading into the second level.
"Fire crews got in quickly and searched, found no victims in any of the residences, so there was no civilian casualties at this fire," said Battalion Chief Community Outreach Officer Richard Jones. "There were also no injuries to civilians and there was no firefighter injuries as well."
The apartment isn't safe for the people who live there to go back right now. The fire department says the family is being helped to find a place to stay.
