Fire ravages Williamsburg Brass Shop, 2 other businesses

Fire swept through several businesses — including the Williamsburg Brass Shop — late Saturday in James City County.

Flames were shooting from the roof of the Brass Shop at 6967 Richmond Road in the Colonial Town Plaza shopping center when firefighters from the James City County Fire Department and James City-Bruton Volunteer Fire Department arrived shortly after 9 p.m., said James City County Battalion Chief Alton Catlett Jr.

Firefighters helped several people out of the building moments before the roof collapsed, Catlett said. No one was injured.

The fire also heavily damaged an adjoining dental practice and hair salon.

Investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire, Catlett said.
