RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The Richmond Fire Department responded to a fire at an apartment building early Friday morning on East Marshall Street.

Crews arrived to 1903 East Marshall at 1:48 a.m. and found heavy smoke coming from the sixth floor. Smoke detectors and sprinklers were activated.

Firefighters on scene sourced the blaze to a trash can outside a fifth-floor apartment, which didn’t spread to any units.

Water from the sprinklers impacted 20 apartments, but no major damage was reported. The fire department says five of the impacted apartments were vacant.

Nobody was injured or displaced as a result of the fire.
