RICHMOND - Three people were killed and another injured on Saturday in an early morning fire at a Chesterfield County home following a domestic dispute, police said.

Thanh Tan Nguyen, 43, his son Anthony Nguyen, 9, and mother-in-law Loan Tran, 60, died in the fire that started at about 4:15 a.m., said Chesterfield County Police Capt. Robert Skowron.

Police believe Thanh Nguyen intentionally started the blaze after a domestic dispute with his ex-wife, Chau Nguyen, Skowron said.

She was not injured, but the couple's daughter is in critical condition at VCU Medical Center.

It was the second fatal fire in the county in two days.

Two people were killed on Friday in an Ettrick home when a cigarette was accidentally dropped into some bedding materials. The identities have not been released.
