On February 16, 2024, Chesterfield Fire and EMS responded to the 5600 block of Drayton Landing Court for a structure fire. While units were responding, a smoke column could be seen. Fire crews arrived to find a fully involved home with multiple exposures. A second alarm was transmitted and crews quickly stretched multiple lines and began a defensive attack. Three people were transported to VCU Medical Center for smoke inhalation and burns. A neighbor witnessed those three individuals jumping out of a window, just before the room they were in ignited. Fire crews were able to bring the fire under control around 0800, but the house suffered significant damage and was deemed a total loss. Two other neighboring houses were also affected by the fire. The Chesterfield County Fire Marshal’s Office was investigating the cause of the fire.
