(Spotsylvania)- From Spotsylvania Fire, Rescue and Emergency Management:
Just after 2am this morning, an occupant of a home in the 13600 block of Fox Chase Lane contacted the Spotsylvania County
Emergency Communications Center to report that their home was on fire. Fire and emergency medical crews were immediately dispatched to the call and arrived nine minutes later. The first fire engine arrived to find the attached garage of a two-story residence heavily involved in fire. The fire was quickly spreading to other portions of the home. Within minutes, firefighters began putting water on the fire, bringing it under control in less than 40 minutes.
Five occupants were home at the time of the fire and managed to escape, without injury, prior to the fire department’s arrival. All have been displaced as a result of the fire and assistance from the American Red Cross has been requested.
In total, 25 career and volunteer members from the Spotsylvania County Department of Fire, Rescue and Emergency Management were on scene to bring the blaze under control. Orange County also assisted with the response by providing tanker from Lake of the Woods Volunteer Fire Department to assist with water supply.
