Show This To Everyone

Chesterfield fire officials say a Friday morning blaze at the facility in Enon is suspicious.

Chesterfield fire officials received a call just after 5 a.m. for a report of smoke in the Amazon Fulfillment Center, 1901 Meadowville Technology Parkway. Fire officials say the fire was found in a shipping bin located on the first floor.

Crews blocked the facility’s entrances. Chesterfield police also responded to the scene. Earlier, workers said they were being stopped from coming into the facility, and therefore, there was a traffic backup on Enon Church Road and Meadowdale Technology Parkway.

“We have a network of fulfillment centers serving our customers and we have a range of contingency measures to ensure we minimize the impact of incidents such as this,” an Amazon official said.

Virginia State Police, Virginia State Police Bomb Squad, and Henrico police also responded to the scene.
