CHESTERFIELD, Va. – Firefighters battled an overnight fire in Chesterfield. The fire originated in the driveway of a home on Lost Forest Drive, off Centralia Road, just after 1:30  a.m. Friday.

Neighbors said they heard two loud booms and when they looked outside, they saw a truck on fire.

“Fire crews arrived to find a truck in the driveway fully involved that had spread to the siding of the home,” Chesterfield Fire spokesman Lt. Jason Elmore said. “Crews worked rapidly to stop the fire from spreading to the rest of the home. It took fire crews approximately 30 minutes to get the fire under control.”
