Second victim dies from Henrico warehouse fire

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A second construction worker has died as a result of a fire last week at a warehouse in Henrico's West End.

Administrators at Hadley Construction in Pittston, PA confirmed the death Thursday, two days after they confirmed the death of the first victim.

Both workers were employed as private contractors doing salvage work in the empty warehouse in the 7400 block of Ranco Road, not far from Staples Mill Road, when the fire started around 2 p.m. Friday.

The call originally came in as a report of a burn patient, but the situation quickly escalated. Crews got to the scene to find two people burned.

Hadley Construction administrators expressed their sadness over the losses.
