HENRICO COUNTY, Va.  — Fire destroyed a shed behind a West End home Thursday morning in Henrico. Firefighters were called to the home, along the 7700 block of Hungary Spring Terrace near Hermitage High School, at around 10:50 a.m. It took firefighters about 10 minutes to bring the fire under control.

“First arriving units reported heavy smoke coming from the rear of a home. Crews found a detached shed at the rear of the residence fully involved in fire,” Henrico Fire spokesman Danny Rosebaum said. “Because of the quick extinguishment, the fire did not spread to the residence or an adjacent shed.”

Fire investigators said faulty electrical service caused the fire. No one was hurt and the family will be able to stay in their home.
