Two Bodies Pulled From Lakeside Home
Richmond, Va. (1140wrva.com) Two people are dead following a house fire in Lakeside. Captain Jim Mellon with Henrico Fire says they were called around 5am by a neighbor and found heavy fire coming from the single family home in the 2800 block of Ginter Street just off of Dumbarton Road.
Captain Mellon says crews did a search as soon as possible, suspecting someone might be inside, and found the first victim, and shortly after that found a second victim. He was not able to say if the victims were adults or whether they were male or female.
A neighbor says a elderly woman lived in the house with her son, who was her caretaker. Neither police nor fire would confirm anything. Family members did come to the scene, though.
Mellon says police and fire investigators are on the scene looking for the cause of the fire, and it's too early to say if it appears to be suspicious.
