HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — One person was taken to the hospital with injuries after a house fire in Henrico’s East End Monday afternoon. Fire officials said their crews responded to the 300 block of North Mullens Road off of East Washington Ave for the report of a house fire at 3:43 p.m.

When units arrived they found the single-story home with heavy fire coming for the rear and side of the home and smoke coming from the attic.
