    Two injured in Arcola fire

    photoPhoto Courtesy/Loudoun Fire and Rescue A house fire today in Arcola left a firefighter and a resident with minor burn injuries. A cause of the fire is still under investigation by the Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s Office.

    A firefighter and resident were injured today following a 1 p.m. fire at a house in Arcola.

    The firefighter was taken to the Washington Hospital Burn Center for a non-life threatening burn injury to the hand and the resident was taken to a local area hospital for treatment of minor burn injuries, according to Loudoun Fire and Rescue.

    The cause of the fire is still under investigation by the The Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s Office. The extent of damage to the house is not yet known.

    When firefighters arrived on scene at the home in the 41000 block of John Mosby Highway they found heavy flames coming from a large workshop and attacked the blaze from the outside, according to reports.

    All individuals on the scene were evacuated prior to fire-rescue’s arrival.

    Fire and Rescue units from Arcola, South Riding, Aldie, Moorefield, Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority-Dulles and Fairfax County responded to the call.

    Because of the home’s rural location, a tanker task force was used for water supply, commanding additional units from Middleburg, Leesburg, Cascades and Prince William County.

    Crews on scene were able to extinguish the fire within approximately 30 minutes.
