Five injured in three separate fires

Five people were injured in three separate house fires Monday and Tuesday morning in Henrico County. All three were kitchen fires. Two of the injured received burns.

Firefighters first were called at 3:13 pm to the 1500 block of Early Street in Highland Springs for a fire in the kitchen. Firefighters arrived to find a kitchen on fire inside the home and an occupant with apparent smoke inhalation. They quickly controlled the fire, and the occupant was evaluated and transported to the hospital for treatment. The cause of the fire was determined to be a stove left on after cooking. A smoke detector was present in the home but failed to operate because the battery had been disconnected.

Kathryne and Robert Louzek left Henrico County three decades ago, but they still think of it as home.

In the intervening years, the Stafford residents (pictured at right after their wedding in 1981 and, below, recently) have criss-crossed the country, setting up household in locations ranging from Florida and California to Georgia and Louisiana. But whenever possible, they get back to eastern Henrico to visit the many family and friends still here.
