[ARCHIVED] Sprinkler Controls Fire at Regency at Longhill Apartments

Fire Department

On Feb. 25 at 2:13 p.m., units from the James City County Fire Department responded to a residential structure fire in the 1000 block of Richardsons Run in the Regency at Longhill Road apartment complex. Neighbors smelled smoke and called 911. First units on the scene discovered a fire had occurred in the bedroom of a first floor unit and was extinguished by automatic sprinklers. Fire Marshals determined that a lamp had fallen off a nightstand igniting clothing on the floor. The American Red Cross is assisting the four residents who are displaced due to water and smoke damage. The residents were not home at the time of the fire and there were no injuries.
