RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — A Richmond house fire left one person injured and killed a beloved pet Sunday, Dec. 11.
The Richmond Fire Department responded to a home at 107 North Harvie Street at 10:17 a.m. Sunday for the report of a house fire. Upon arrival responding crews found heavy smoke and fire coming from the home.
One person had exited the home and was taken to a local hospital for burns, the fire department said. Crews reportedly removed one dog from the home, but it did not survive.
