Fire at Virginia Correctional Center
March 30, 1999
Powhatan Fire/Rescue responded to a structure fire at Powhatan Correctional Center, In a sheet metal fabrication shop.
The building, which resides just outside the security perimeter, was a total loss. A preliminary investigation points to an electrical origin.
Security at the facility was at no time compromised.
Soon after Powhatan Fire/Rescue arrived on the scene, assistance from neighboring Goochland county VFD was requested, and an aerial truck and a heavy-duty pumper was dispatched. The Fire took about an hour to an hour and a half to be brought under control.
No serious injuries were reported, and all companies were back in quarters by about 11 PM
