One fire begins as another is extinguished

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) – Chesterfield firefighters are responding to an engulfed home after extinguishing a separate fire only a few hours earlier.

The latest blaze started at a home in the 8600 block of Baldwin Creek Rd. just south of Hull St. in the Winterpock area.

Firefighters are now on-scene working to control the blaze.

We've a crew of our own on the way and will have more details later this evening.

Earlier this afternoon, firefighters extinguished an apartment fire in Ettrick that left three people displaced.

Shortly after 1:00 pm, crews were called to Rowanty Court just north of VSU.

Firefighters say a worker was doing some maintenance inside an apartment when a fire started inside a wall.

No injuries have yet been reported in either incident.
