CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) – A baseboard heater is to blame for a fire Monday evening at a home on Woolridge Road in Chesterfield.

The old farm house has extensive damage. The fire started about 4:30 p.m. when one of the beds caught fire.

No one was home. It took crews more than an hour to get it under control because they had trouble getting water to fight it.
