HENRICO, Va. (WWBT) - An early morning house fire sent one person to the hospital in Henrico’s West End.
Crews responded at 5:13 a.m. Sunday for a fire in the 5800 block of Westbourne Drive. Firefighters quickly put out the fire. They later found the person who lives in the home was next door at a neighbor’s house.
They say the resident tried to put out the flames with several trips of water from a sink, but then had to exit the house. One person was evaluated for smoke inhalation and transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The Red Cross is helping the displaced resident. The Henrico Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause of the fire.
