10 Displaced After West End Apartment Fire

Posted: Updated:

HENRICO (WRIC) - 10 people were displaced from their homes after an apartment fire in Henrico's west end early Saturday morning.

Fire crews responded to an apartment building on Pellington Place just before 2:30 a.m. to find fire in a bedroom in the back of the building. Firefighters were able to extinguish the flames quickly and prevent the fire from spreading to neighboring apartments, some of which sustained water and smoke damage.

All occupants were able to make it out of the building thanks to working smoke detectors, Henrico fire officials said. No injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
