NORTH STAFFORD, Va. – A sea of emergency vehicles descended on a house on Garrisonville Road on Monday night.
A fire broke out at a 2-story home at 1006 Garrisonville Road, just past Shelton Shop Road, at 11:34 p.m. A woman and her two small children were inside the house when they smelled smoke.
“She said it kind of exploded, and there’s a lot of combustible stuff in the basement,” said Debra Logan
Logan said it was her her niece was inside the house with the children, and when they heard the electrical box on the side of the house started making noises, that’s when they called 911.
Logan lives across the street. Her father, many years ago, built the house that caught fire late Monday. The two children – a 2-year-old girl and 3-year-old boy, and their mother made it out of the house unharmed.
The family gathered in the front yard for hugs as fire crews searched the house to ensure the fire was completely doused.
It took firefighters about 25 minutes to bring the blaze under control. While the official cause of the fire has not been released, Logan suspects the electrical box on the side of the house could have sparked the fire.
A crew with Dominion Virginia Power later arrived on the scene. Fire crews called for assistance from the power company after dousing the blaze.
