UPDATED: Firefighters Battle Early Morning Blaze in McLean

An early morning fire in McLean caused significant damage to a two story home near Langley High School.

Firefighters were dispatched to the 900 block of Turkey Run Road around 4 a.m. and encountered flames coming from the roof of a home upon arrival. The blaze was extinguished and by 6 a.m. crews were working to douse remaining hotspots. No injuries were reported.

The fire occurred about a mile from Friday’s two-alarm blaze on Malta Lane, which like Turkey Run Road is a narrow back road that’s somewhat difficult for large fire apparatus to navigate.

Update on 1/10/19 — The fire caused more than $300,000 in damage, according to Fairfax County Fire and Rescue. No one was at home at the time of the blaze.
