RICHMOND, Va. — Investigators want to know what started an overnight fire in downtown Richmond.

Firefighters spotted flames inside a building at 15 West Leigh Street, that’s across from the Bojangles statue, sometime after 4:00 am Saturday morning.

Crews say the flames started on the first floor and spread to the second story.

Police were forced to block off the streets around the fire until units could get the fire under control.

There are no reports of injuries.
