Glen Allen house fire ruled an accident

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - An overnight house fire in Henrico has been ruled an accident.

The fire started around 1:30 Wednesday morning at a home in the 11900 block of Old Washington Highway in Glen Allen.

The fire was in a rural part of the county, which created problems for crews, since there were no fire hydrants in the area. They had to use a tanker truck to put water on the flames.

It took them about 15 minutes to get the fire under control. Three people were in the home — they all got out safely.

We're told the fire was electrical and started in the attic. It's not known right now if the home is a total loss.
