HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — Firefighters quickly knocked out a fire that broke out in a shed at a home on Henrico County on the Fourth of July.

It happened just after 9 p.m. in the 2300 block of Dumbarton Road.

“First arriving units reported heavy smoke and fire coming from the detached shed at the rear of the residence,” Capt. Daniel Rosenbaum with Henrico County Division of Fire said. “The shed was approximately 12 feet by 12 feet in size and the fire was quickly extinguished by crews.”

Crews had marked the fire, which caused significant fire and smoke damage to the structure, by 9:45 p.m.

Thankfully no one was hurt and the family was not displaced.

The exact cause of the fire remains under investigation.
