RICHMOND , Va. (WTVR) – Richmond fire crews responded to a call at an assisted living home early Saturday.

When crews arrived at the center along the 1000 block of German School Rd. at 4:30 a.m., light smoke was seen on the 5th floor of the building.

The fire was moved to a two-alarm fire due to the nature, and size of the building so extra resources could be called as a precaution.

The fire was marked under control in a few minutes.

The fire started in a trash container.

One person was transported to VCU Medical Center for minor smoke inhalation.

    Come on, people! You can get a hit on almost any term, on line, using a search engine, but you won’t find ‘assistant’ living anywhere!

    The term is ‘assisted’ living!

    Another well-written story – what is the name of the facility? Boy, your writers are really falling down on the job today!
