Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department units responded to a house fire, Sunday, October 16, 2011, at approximately 3:10 a.m. in the Fairfax Station area of Fairfax County. The single-family home is located at 10410 Dominion Valley Drive.
Firefighters encountered a fully involved fire from all sides of the two-story home. Firefighters quickly reverted to a defensive fire attack as the fire was well involved throughout the large, wood-frame home. It took firefighters over an hour to bring the fire under control.
The Incident Commander requested a tanker task force, consisting of multiple water tankers and a water relay to assist with bringing the fire under control as the home was in a non-hydrant area. No one was home when the fire broke out. A total of three occupants have been displaced. Red Cross assistance was declined. A family member was transported to INOVA Fairfax Hospital for a non-life threatening injury. One firefighter was transported to the Washington Hospital Burn Center for a non-life threatening injury.
The home is a total loss.
According to fire investigators, the fire is under investigation.
