Algonkian Elementary evacuated for electrical fire

Algonkian Elementary School in Sterling was evacuated Sept. 17 for an electrical fire in a computer lab.

At approximately 9:30 a.m., the Loudoun County Emergency Communication Center dispatched units from Cascades, Sterling Park, Lansdowne, Leesburg and Fairfax County after receiving reports of a fire. Smoke was found in the computer lab and the crews were able to locate a small electrical fire, which was extinguished, on the floor of the lab.

The building had been evacuated before fire and rescue units arrived, and everyone is accounted for. No injuries have been reported.

The building is currently being ventilated, and fire and rescue are still on scene. The Loudoun County Fire Marshal's Office is also on scene conducting an investigation.
