Two alarm fire tears through warehouse in Henrico’s east end overnight

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — A two alarm fire ripped through a warehouse in Henrico’s east end overnight.

Firefighters were called out to the 5200 block of Klockner Drive just before 2:00 a.m. for a fire alarm.

When crews arrived on scene, they initially did not see the blaze — but began to investigate. That’s when they found rubber foam inside the warehouse had caught on fire.

Fortunately, no one was inside when this warehouse caught fire.

16 fire units were called out to the scene to help battle the blaze. With the help of the building’s sprinkler system, firefighters were able to mark the fire under control right around 3:20 a.m.

Now, the investigation begins to determine what caused the fire. The Fire Marshall’s Office is on scene.
