RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — An abandoned home was heavily impacted by a house fire in Richmond early Thursday morning.
Richmond Fire was called to a home near the 900 block of West Clay Street in Richmond at 1:41 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 10.
Upon arrival, fire crews found the inside of a vacant, two-story home fully engulfed in flames. The fire department increased the severity level of the call to bring in more resources due to the attached exposure and amount of fire in the area.
Richmond Fire said both the roof and the second floor of the residence collapsed, and due to concerns about the structural integrity of the structure, two tenants in the adjacent unit were displaced. There was also exterior fire damage two houses down.
Nobody was injured in the blaze, and the fire department is investigating the cause of the fire.
