On September 4, 2023, Chesterfield Fire and EMS responded to the 800 block of Research Road for a reported structure fire. Fire Marshal 207 arrived to find a metal non-combustible building with heavy fire showing through the roof. A second alarm was declared and fire crews began a defensive operation due to a roof collapse. The blaze was eventually able to be marked under control and crews remained on scene through the rest of the day performing overhaul. The garage and auto detailing shop was declared a total loss. The Chesterfield Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause. Chesterfield crews also responded the next day for a rekindle. Crews were fortunately able to quickly get that under control.
