Fire crews fight large house blaze in Hanover County

HANOVER COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Hanover County firefighters battled a large house fire in the 12000 block of Walnut Hill Drive.

Fire officials report that when they arrived around noon, they found an 8,000 square foot house on fire. The blaze apparently started in the garage and spread rapidly throughout the home.

All residents made it out safely without injury.

Crews had to rely on water tankers to fight the fire because there are no hydrants in the area.

Multiple crews were on the scene including crews from Goochland to assist.

If you would like to donate to the family, their GoFundMe account can be found here.
