In early March we told you about the February 5 fire in Spotsylvania County, Virginia where 43-year-old Sandy Hill died. Sandy Hill was on the phone with 911 when the first firefighters from Chancellor Volunteer Fire & Rescue pulled up to the scene on and for many minutes after their arrival. Unfortunately, despite a relatively small amount of fire, the crews didn’t get to Hill in her second floor room until it was too late.
As reporter Dan Telvock of the Free Lance – Star started asking questions about the lengthy delay in finding Hill, county officials ordered an internal investigation of the fire. That report was presented tonight to the Spotsylvania Board of Supervisors. According to a press release, County Administrator C. Douglas Barnes has sent “the entire internal review report has now been submitted to four outside experts/agencies from around the country, for their additional close analysis of what took place.”
