HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) - Henrico County Division of Fire units responded to the 1800 block of Binford Lane in Henrico County's North Side Thursday evening for the report of a house fire. 

The call came in at 11:57 p.m.  Crews on the scene reported smoke from a single story residence and found fire in the rear bedroom.  Crews extinguished the fire shortly after arrival.

There was moderate fire and smoke damage done to the residence.  No injuries were reported from the fire.  One adult male will be displaced for a short period of time and will be receiving assistance from the greater Richmond Chapter of the American Red Cross,

The Fire Marshal's Office of the Division of Fire has determined the cause to have been accidental in nature.  The fire was caused by a light weight muti-plug extension cord that overheated and caught fire.  The electrical cord was also covered and allowed the heat to build up and gave the fire fuel to burn.
