HENRICO, Va. (WRIC) — Two people have been displaced after the kitchen inside their home in Henrico caught fire Sunday evening.
The fire occurred shortly after 8 p.m. in the 1900 block of North Battery Drive. First arriving units found smoke coming from the front door and flames coming from inside the kitchen of the single-story home.
The fire, which was determined to have been accidental and caused by unattended cooking in the kitchen, was quickly extinguished and contained to the kitchen.
Captain Danny Rosenbaum with Henrico Fire and EMS would like to remind the public that cooking fires are the number one cause of home fires and home injuries, and that the leading cause of kitchen fires is unattended cooking.
