    Four displaced in Sterling house fire

    Four Sterling residents were displaced Jan. 26 after a fire ripped through a Magnolia Court home, causing $200,000 in damage.

    The fire at 201 Magnolia Court started at about 7:19 p.m. after Loudoun County Emergency Communications began receiving numerous calls. Fire and rescue units responded from Sterling Fire, Sterling Rescue, Ashburn and Fairfax County.

    The first unit arrived on the scene and reported heavy flames showing from the two-story home. 

    Crews attacked the blaze starting on the inside, but had to pull back due to the fire’s size. An exterior attack knocked down the bulk of the fire on both floors and crews re-entered the home to finally put out the flames. It took crews approximately 30 minutes to contain the fire, according to Loudoun Fire and Rescue.

    No firefighter injures were reported, but one resident was taken to Inova Hospital in Lansdowne for trouble breathing.

    The American Red Cross was called to the scene to provide shelter for the residents.

    The Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s Office is conducting their investigation and the cause of the fire is undetermined at this time.
