Woman rescued in Spotsy house fire

Firefighers arrived four minutes after the call and discovered a fire in the kitchen of a split foyer home. Firefighters quickly began to extinguish the fire and searched the home for any occupants.

Within minutes of arrival, firefighters had located an adult female occupant who was unable to escape and sought refuge in a second floor bedroom. The occupant was removed and transferred to medical personnel who immediately began assessment and treatment of her injuries. The occupant was transported to Mary Washington with what are believed to be serious but non-life threatening injuries. She was later taken to MCV.

More than 30 career and volunteer members from the Spotsylvania County Department of Fire, Rescue and Emergency Management were on scene to bring the blaze under control. A total of three engines, two aerials, three medical transport units and several support staff responded. The incident was under control within 15 minutes of the original call. The Fire Marshal’s Office also responded to the scene to investigate the cause and origin of the fire which is still under investigation. (Photo: Spotsylvania Fire, Rescue and Emergency Management)
