1 dead in Richmond-area house fire

Chesterfield fire

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – The fire marshal in Chesterfield County says one person has died in a house fire.

Marshal Robby Dawson says the fire occurred early Saturday at a two-story home in the Enon area near Interstate 295.

Dawson says heavy smoke and flames prohibited firefighters from initially searching the house, which partially collapsed.

Dawson says two people who lived at the home were working at the time. A body was later pulled from the home and Dawson says the victim’s identify wasn’t immediately determined.

Media outlets report the investigation is continuing.
