House Fire in Idylwood Area Displaces Four Residents

Four people are displaced following a fire at their home in the Idylwood area last week.

Fairfax County Fire and Rescue said that the fire started around 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday (May 27) in the 7100 block of Shreve Road.

“Units arrived on the scene of a two-story, single-family home with smoke showing from the roof,” the fire department said. “Crews located a fire on the first floor and quickly extinguished.”

The four people at the house reported the fire after smelling smoke and seeing flames in the laundry room, the fire department said.

The people accepted Red Cross assistance after being displaced because of the fire, which caused roughly $37,500 worth of damages, the fire department said.

The fire department is still investigating what started the fire in the first-floor laundry room, adding that no injuries to civilians nor firefighters have been reported.
