CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WTVR)--Parts of Jahnke Road were closed as the Chesterfield Fire Department battled a fully involved fire.

Jahnke closed Monday night between Southam Drive and Bloomfield Road for a couple of hours. The house in the 7700 block of Jahnke Road was engulfed in flames.

The back part of the house was consumed by the fire. There were no injuries reported. We do know that neighbors called it in around 8:30 p.m. Two people have been displaced as a result.

Police sources said that ammunition exploding in the heat made it harder to fight flames.

Investigators are still working to find the cause of the fire.
