HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Henrico fire officials say an electrical problem sparked an apartment fire that sent a woman to the hospital and displaced others on Sunday afternoon.

The blaze happened in the 10 block of Chase Gayton Drive just before 1:30 p.m.

When crews got on scene, fire was coming from the top floor of a 3-story building. It took firefighters about 20 minutes to put out the fire.

Officials say one person was taken to VCU Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, and the Red Cross is helping several occupants who were displaced by the fire.

They say some cats and dogs were saved from the fire.
