Hays Post – April 18, 2014

Hays fire crews responded to a building fire in the 2500 block of Virginia Drive late Thursday.

According to a press release from the Hays Fire Department, crews were dispatched to a building fire at 2513 Virginia Drive at 11:23 p.m. Thursday.

When fire crews arrived on scene, they found a large fire burning in the house, and the house next door was also in danger of catching fire.

It took crews about 20 minutes to get the fire under control, but crews remained on scene until about 2:20 a.m.

The building, according to the fire department, sustained heavy damage and the fire most probably started in the attached garage. The cause of the fire has not been determined. The occupant of the house escaped without injury.
