Philip Morris plant damaged in overnight fire

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A two-alarm fire is under investigation this morning in south Richmond.

Fire crews were called just before 1:00 Saturday morning to the Philip Morris Plant on Commerce Road.

Firefighters tell us motorists on I-95 could see flames could be seen coming from the roof.

It took about an hour to get the fire under control.

We are told there had been some roof work going on at the facility.

Investigators are looking into that as a possible cause.
