Firefighters responding to a house fire in Richmond early this morning found a marijuana grow operation there, a fire battalion chief said.
The one-alarm fire was reported around 4 a.m. at 1825 Hellings Ave. and was extinguished about 10 minutes later, Richmond fire Battalion Chief Manly Moulton said.
The single-story home was vacant at the time and no injuries were reported in the blaze, Moulton said.
The cause of the fire is under investigation, he said.
