Fire crews are working to put out the blaze with an aggressive attack on the structure’s exterior, Henrico Fire said. Since there are no fire hydrants in the area, water tankers are being used to shuttle water to the scene.

The fire department said the homeowners were out of town at the time of the fire, so nobody was home and nobody was injured in the blaze.

A section of Darbytown Road between Turner Road and Yahley Mill Road in Henrico is closed due to the fire. Police and fire officials will be in the area through the morning rush hour.

The fire has been marked under control but crews are still working to put out hotspots.
