Thanks to the Henrico and other fire departments for being there to handle these fires.
No thanks to the VA Homebuilders association for NOT wanting to install automatic sprinklers in homes. They claim all you need is a smoke detector. Yeah right.
Probably had these buildings had sprinklers, the fire may have not got this far and such a hold on these buildings.
Also those apartments or townhouses are going to burn fast due to the lightweight type of construction. Anything with 2/4's and plywood as the roof and other parts will fail very quickly!
All single family house are now built this way and a early roof collapse will occurred even on a minor fire.

As someone who lives in a high fire complex..... My heartfelt commiserations to the people affected. Its devastating, and I hope your communities are as embracing and close knit as the community I live in. This is when the best of humanity can be seen.
And Absolutely thank you to Henrico Fire for quick and overwhelming response. You guys rock!
