HENRICO, Va. – Heavy smoke billowed across the horizon in Glen Allen, plumes of smoke rising up from a tent burning in Innsbrook.  The catering tent, which is 50 feet by 50 feet, caught fire, an official confirmed.

Three engines and two tankers responded to 4901 Lake Brook Drive in Glen Allen, at the Innsbrook Pavilion -- formerly sponsored by Snagajob.

The tent is charred, and unusable.

Numerous office buildings surround the pavilion and multiple calls flooded 911 and the executive offices at the Innsbrook Foundation.

“No one was there and no major structure was affected, “ said Yvonne Nelson, Executive Director with the Innsbrook Foundation.

“Henrico Fire Department was amazing,” she added. “Station 22 responded within minutes and stopped it from going further.”

The fire is under investigation. The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.
