Two-alarm fire rips through Richmond house, displaces five
Richmond, USA, Virginia, East coast
Richmond [USA] September 1: A two-alarm fire displaced five people and caused extensive damage to a two-story house Friday, a fire official said.
Nobody was injured in the blaze, but three people were checked for possible smoke inhalation, Richmond Fire Department Chief Adrian Sheppard said. All three - two of the residents and one of the neighbors - proved to be OK, he said.
Nobody was hospitalized.
Firefighters battled the blaze for a little longer than an hour, finally bringing it under control at 1:06 p.m., Sheppard said. Crews were dispatched to the two-story house in the 200 block of South 47th Street just before 10 a.m.

The first firefighters to arrive saw flames and smoke coming from the garage and the second floor of the house, Sheppard said. They immediately called for a second alarm, because other homes on the streets were so close to the flames, he said.
The Red Cross worked with the residents to provide them housing for the next 72 hours. The house is salvageable, Sheppard said, but not for a significant amount of time.
