HENRICO COUNTY, VA - On April 7th at 7:43 P.M., Henrico Fire units responded to the 8300 block of Fordson Farm Lane, off New Market Road and I295. Henrico 911 Emergency Communication Center received multiple calls for a structure on fire, with several calls coming from I295 travelers.

Fire units arrived to find fire coming from the outside and inside of a two-story, colonial style, residential home built in 1935. The sole occupant met the fire department outside upon their arrival, reporting that everyone was out of the home. The fire spread throughout the inside and into the attic area.

There are limited fire hydrants in the immediate area, therefore firefighters used water tankers to supply water to the fire scene. The home sustained major damage from the fire. The American Red Cross will be assisting the occupant with housing and personal items.

Henrico Fire Marshals were on scene to determine the origin and cause.
