HENRICO, Va. (WWBT) - A man suffered burns to his arms and 21 people are out of their homes after a two-alarm fire in eastern Henrico.

The fire was under control within 30 minutes.
The fire department says four apartments were affected by smoke, fire, or water damage. The American Red Cross was called in to help 8 adults and 13 children whose homes were impacted.
