HENRICO COUNTY, Va. —  A Henrico family escaped a house fire unharmed Friday night in the 9700 block of Laurel Pine Drive.

Henrico County Fire responded to the home off Hungary Road for the report of a house fire at 10:37 p.m. When crews arrived they reported a split-level home with fire coming from the top floor in a bedroom.

Crews quickly extinguished the fire with hose lines taken inside the home, and the fire was contained to the top floor. The fire was marked under control at 10:55 p.m.

Officials said the fire appears to be accidental in nature.

Several people were home at the time of the fire, but all escaped the fire without injury. The Red Cross will assist the occupants with their needs.

The family has also started a GoFundMe page to help replace belongings lost in the fire.
