Over a Hundred Firefighters Battle Crozet Blaze

Posted: Updated:

Albemarle firefighters spent hours Sunday battling a blaze inside a Crozet home on the 600 block of Greenwood Road.

Flames were showing through the roof just before 9:00 Sunday morning when firefighters arrived on scene. The women living in the house got out. No one was injured.

The Crozet Fire Department says it took about three hours for 100 firefighters across Albemarle County to knock it down.

Crozet Fire Department Chief Preston Gentry said "Gettin it put out. And the fire had spread to another area that had cut up with renovations - and it's just an old house and very difficult."

Crews plan to be on scene until later Sunday night to make sure hot spots will not ignite. The cause of the fire is still under investigation, and they are tallying the cost of damage.
