House Fire on Southside

On December 3 at 2:12 p.m. Richmond Fire units were dispatched to the 1300 block of Hodges Road for a reported fire alarm activation from the first and second floor smoke alarm.  Q-22 arrived on scene with smoke showing from the D side of a 2-story brick structure.  Q-22 established a water supply and began fire attack as Q-21 performed truck company operations.  Battalion 3 arrived on scene and requested the additional units to fill the assignment.  Units found fire on the first floor and in the attic area of the house.  The Red Cross was called in to assist two occupants.  The fire was marked under control at 3:21 p.m. and the cause of the fire is accidental.
