Improperly Discard Smoking Materials Cause Wolf Trap House Fire

Firefighters say improperly discarded smoking materials led to a house fire in the Wolf Trap area last Friday (May 17).

There were no injuries, but the fire in the Chase Hill neighborhood is estimated to have caused $5,200 in damages.

The fire is the latest in what the fire department says has been a trend, with several house fires throughout Fairfax being caused by improper disposal of smoking materials like cigarettes.
