Ashland, Va. (1140wrva.com) An elderly woman has succumbed to injuries sustained in a house fire in Ashland. Hanover Battalion Chief Jason Williams says a neighbor reported the fire just before 6am in the 12,000 block of Cheroy Road.
The neighbor, who is a Henrico firefighter, helped the woman get out. She suffered burns. Williams says it took about 45 minutes to get control of the fire, and says they had to bring water in because there were no hydrants in the area.
