Fire destroys home owned by former Virginia governor
MCLEAN, Va. (WWBT) - A massive fire destroyed a home owned by a former Virginia governor early Wednesday morning.
The McLean home is owned by former Senator and Virginia Gov. Charles Robb and his wife, Lynda Bird Johnson Robb, according to NBC4.
Fire crews were called to the home in the 600 block of Chain Bridge Road around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday. They quickly had to call in help from other departments.
Witnesses said smoke could be seen across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C.
Officials say Robb suffered burns and his wife Lynda smoke inhalation - but both are expected to recover.
The home has an estimated value of $3.4 million and is a total loss.
Robb served as Virginia’s governor from 1982-1986 and represented Virginia in the U.S. Senate from 1989 to 2001.
