CHESTERFIELD, Va. (WRIC) — Two Chesterfield residents have been left without a home after a house fire Friday morning.
Crews responded to the house fire on Scottwood Road, a small dirt track near the border between Chesterfield and Powhatan counties. Fire officials say that because the area had no fire hydrant, multiple crews were called to assist.
There were no reported injuries, but photos taken at the scene show that the home was almost completely destroyed. The two occupants were reportedly displaced. The fire is now under investigation.
According to Chesterfield Fire, firefighters were actively dousing the flames by 11:00 am, just twenty minutes after the call became active at 11:39 am.
As of 11:40 am, the fire was reportedly marked under control, although fire crews remained on scene “extensive overhaul.”
