CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - Seven people are injured and 22 displaced after a large apartment fire in Chesterfield early Wednesday morning.
Fire trucks, ambulances and police cars all responded to the 6700 block of Jeff Davis Highway around 2:45 a.m.
Five people were taken to the hospital with minor injuries and two were treated on scene. Crews say one person jumped from their second-floor apartment and two people escaped from a first-floor window. The intensity of that fire was so strong that firefighters were pushed out of the building.
As investigators continue to look at a cause, displaced residents were trying to make a plan where to go from here.
