YORK COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) — A woman was taken to the hospital after a house caught fire Wednesday morning in the Tabb area of York County.

York County firefighters say it happened around 4 a.m. in the 200 block of Halles Run in the Robert Trace subdivision.

According to the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office, deputies were initially sent to the home for a welfare check. When they got to the scene, they found smoke and flames coming from the second-story window.

Firefighters were dispatched after being summoned by York-Poquoson deputies, who were able to remove an unconscious woman from inside the home.

Officials say the woman, believed to be the sole occupants at that time, was taken to a local hospital with critical injuries.

The deputies who responded were also treated for smoke inhalation, one of which was sent to the hospital but was later released.

The fire was later marked under control and an investigation into the cause is underway.
