Former Virginia governor Chuck Robb's mansion suffers massive fire

Former governor Chuck Robb’s Virginia mansion went up in flames Tuesday night.

Firefighters arrived at the two-alarm fire on the 600 block of Chain Bridge Road in McLean, Va. at 11:30 p.m.

Two people escaped the home and were transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to Fairfax County Fire and Rescue.

There’s no indication if the people were Robb and his wife Lynda, daughter of former President Lyndon B. Johnson.

Fairfax Fire officials announced the fire was under control following the three-hour battle.

Investigators have yet to determine the cause of the blaze.

Witnesses in Washington D.C. captured the massive fire from across the Potomac River on social media.

The 82-year-old politician owned the property, which is valued at $3.4 million, since 1973, according to InsideNova.

Robb served as governor of Virginia from 1982 to 1986. He was later elected to the US Senate, where he served until 2001.

Two people were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatning injuries.
