One person lost their home this morning (Wednesday) in a fire in Dunn Loring.
The Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department says it had units dispatched to the house fire in the 8200 block of First Avenue at 5:02 a.m. When they arrived at the small, wooden house, “heavy fire” was visible.
The fire was “quickly extinguished,” and there were no reported injuries, according to the department. However, one occupant was displaced.
A photo of the building shows that its windows are gone, and the front portion of the steepled roof has been destroyed.
An investigation into the cause of the fire is now underway.
