Incendiary Event

            Franconia Police District – Police and Fire department personnel responded to the report of an apparent explosion and fire at 9504 Richmond Highway in Lorton on Wednesday, February, 6 at about 10:30 a.m. The fire was extinguished quickly and one adult male victim was ground transported to a local hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

            The preliminary investigation indicates that some sort of incendiary event occurred inside the business and that one black male was observed running from the scene. It is possible that this subject sustained injuries from the fire.

            Police helicopter and K9 units responded to check the area. Crime Scene Technicians and Homicide Detectives also responded and are conducting the follow up investigation in conjunction with the Fire Marshal’s Office. That office will ultimately determine the origin and cause of the fire.

             Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Solvers by phone at 1-866-411-TIPS/8477, e-mail at or text “TIP187” plus your message to CRIMES/274637 or call Fairfax County Police at 703-691-2131.
