On March 15th shortly before 2 pm units from the James City County Fire Department responded to a report of a house fire on DeLafayette Street in James City County. Concerned neighbors called 911 when they spotted smoke coming from the eaves of the home. While fire units were en-route, reports of no one coming to the door were received. With the possibility of the occupant still inside, firefighters immediately entered and searched the home, finding no occupant and a small fire in the kitchen area which was quickly extinguished. The homeowner was eventually located safely out of the area. The fire is under investigation by James City County fire marshal's.
