(Updated at 8:35 p.m.) The Towers Crescent office building in Tysons has been evacuated in response to a reported fire.
Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department units were dispatched to 8000 Towers Crescent Drive around 7:26 p.m. for the high-rise fire, according to scanner traffic on Open MHz.
Crews are currently evacuating the commercial building and investigating smoke on the ninth floor, the FCFRD tweeted at 7:46 p.m. The smoke was reported by the building’s security team, and an odor was confirmed by firefighters on the scene, per the scanner.
The cause has yet to be determined, but on the scanner, firefighters described the odor as “electrical” in nature.
“No firefighter injuries have been reported,” the department said. As of 8:15 p.m., there have been no reported civilian injuries either, a spokesperson told FFXnow.
The 17-story, Class A office building is topped by the 22,000-square-foot Towers Club, where a party with about 60 people had to be evacuated.
“They’re ready to leave,” a firefighter said on the scanner at 8:12 p.m.
It’s unclear how many people overall needed to be evacuated.
