"First arriving units found a single-story commercial building with heavy fire through the roof of the structure. Fire crews made the initial fire attack from the exterior then conducted interior searches," Henrico Fire spokesperson John Walls wrote in an email. "Once the fire was brought under control safety zones were established as the entire attic support system was consumed by the fire. Fire crews will remain on scene and complete operations during daylight for safety reasons."
