When crews arrived at 2:40 a.m., they encountered an exterior fire on the side of a single-story duplex. The fire was isolated to the outside of the structure and involved a

privacy fence and the electrical meter bases that provided power to the duplex. The fire ran the side of the duplex’s brick, impinging on the soffit. Crews knocked the fire down from

the exterior, preventing the fire from entering the duplex. As a result of the fire damage to the meter bases, one adult and two juveniles were displaced. Dominion Virginia Power responded

and secured power at the meters for the duplex. No injuries to firefighters or occupants are reported.


The Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause and origin of the fire. The fire is considered “undetermined,” and Fire Investigator Chris Corbett leads the investigation. Please contact

Investigator Corbett, if you have any information regarding the fire, call 757-514-4583.
