[R] Extracting variance components from lmer

Hi All.

I need a bit of help extracting the residual error variance from the VarCorr structure from lmer.

#Here's a 2-way random effects model

lmer.1 <- lmer(rating ~ (1|person)+(1|rater), data = dat)

#Get the structure

vc.fit <- VarCorr(lmer.1)

#results in.....

1 x 1 Matrix of class "dpoMatrix"

(Intercept) 0.7755392

1 x 1 Matrix of class "dpoMatrix"

(Intercept) 0.2054469

[1] 0.5051518

#I can pull out the person and rater variance components easy enough. For
vc.person <- vc.fit$person@x

I'm sure it's simple but I have not been able to grab the residual variance in the last matrix. I simply wish to asign the residual to a scalar variable. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
