Ovi Poses for Photo With Local Firefighters After False Alarm

The Great Eight snapped a photo with local firefighters responding to a call at a house near his own in the McLean area.

Fairfax County Fire and Rescue tweeted out the photo this morning (Friday). The firefighters were all smiles with Caps star Alexander Ovechkin, sporting a hooded Nike sweatshirt, posing in the middle.

“Yesterday after a false alarm next door, this really GR8 neighbor checked in with E442, Wolftrap, to make sure all was well,” the tweet said.

The Washington Capitals captain lives about two miles north of Tysons.
