Electrical outlet sparked destructive Chesterfield house fire

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

A fire that destroyed a Chesterfield home Friday started from an electrical outlet, according to fire officials.

The fire started around 10:00 a.m. on Sappony Road, near the Amelia border. Crews had trouble getting to the fire because the home is far from the road and surrounded by trees. Firefighters had to bring in two water tanker trucks to fight the flames.

It took 25 minutes for firefighters to get the fire under control. The home is badly damaged and the two adult residents will have to find somewhere else to stay.

Two adults were displaced by the fire.
