Henrico Fire Responds to Wall Collapse

Henrico County Fire responded to 2208 Pearl Road during Wednesday night’s storm for a warehouse damaged in the storm.

The brick veneer from a large warehouse building had peeled away and fallen to the ground and on top of a car.

The workers inside the building reported hearing a loud bang which they thought was lightening hitting the building just before they heard the wall come down.

The Henrico County Building inspector responded out and determined that a lack of sufficient brick ties to the block wall contributed to the collapse.  The building will be closed during repairs.

No injuries were reported from the incident.
