RICHMOND (WRIC)—No injuries were reported in a fire that broke out at the Richmond Peterbilt dealership early Tuesday morning.

At 3:47 a.m. on Jan. 21, the Richmond Department of Fire and Emergency Services responded to the Peterbilt Store at 2800A Deepwater Terminal Road for a report of a building fire. Crews arrived on scene to find heavy fire coming from the roof of the 18-wheeler maintenance facility.

"Being a maintenance facility, there were some noises heard, some bangs and pops … primarily due to the contents of the building," said Lieutenant Robbie Hagaman.

At 4:04 a.m., the fire went to a second alarm, and additional crews were called to help battle the blaze. The fire was marked under control at 4:55 a.m. Crews are expected to remain on scene throughout the morning to put out hot spots and investigate the cause of the fire.

No injuries have been reported.
