[ARCHIVED] Fire in Townhome Displaces Occupants

Mews Fire

On June 6 at 4:49 p.m., units from the James City County Fire Department responded to a residential structure fire in the 5100 block of Greenwich Mews in the Mews of Williamsburg subdivision. The homeowner called 911 reporting a grill on fire on the back deck, and first arriving units found heavy fire conditions on the rear of the two story townhome building with extension into the attic space. The fire was brought under control at 6:41 p.m., after causing significant fire and smoke damage to two of the units. There were no injuries. The James City-Bruton Volunteer Fire Department, Williamsburg Fire Department and York County Department of Fire and Life Safety assisted.

Please remember these important safety tips when using grills.

- Only use a grill outside and keep it at least 3 feet from siding, deck rails and eaves.
- Clean the grill after each use
- Keep a 3-foot safe zone around the grill.
- Place cooled coals in a metal can with a lid.
- Stay with a grill when it is in use.
