Reveley’s property hit by lightning fire

A condominium owned by Interim College President Taylor Reveley was struck by lightning during a thunderstorm Tuesday evening.

At approximately 6:42 p.m., units responded to the 200 block of Woodmere Dr., a condo complex called the Woodlands, where Reveley used to live with his wife, Helen.

Reveley and his wife currently live in the President’s House on the College campus, but they continue to own the condo, where they lived when Reveley was law dean.

Firefighters worked for two hours. According to a fire department spokesperson Chuck White, four units were damaged, two by fire and two by water.

According to College spokesman Brian Whitson, the president was out of town at the time of the fire, and his wife was in Richmond.

“Their first concern was for the neighbors and we’re just thankful that everyone got out of the building safely,” Whitson said. “They are also thankful for the work of the responding firefighters.”

No one was injured during the event.
