    Crews respond to two fires over the weekend

    Fire and rescue services in Loudoun had to respond to two fires this weekend, one in an apartment and another in a single-family home.

    Crews responded to the first fire at 5 p.m. June 21 at an Ashburn apartment on 20965 Timber Ridge Terrace. Units from six different stations responded to the apartment.

    Firefighters saw smoke coming from a second story garden apartment and were able to find the fire and quickly extinguish it.

    Smoke and water damage was limited to the apartment of origin and the unit directly below, displacing three people. The Loudoun County Fire Marshal's Office is investigating the cause of the fire; damage is estimated to be at $70,000.

    The following day, fire and rescue had to battle another blaze, this one in Purcellville. Crews from seven stations, including one from Frederick County, responded to the fire on Paris Breeze Place at 9:50 p.m. Firefighters found a fire in the basement of the home. According to the Loudoun County Fire Marshal's Office, the fire was accidental, caused from combustible items stored near a light fixture in the basement. Because of the nature of the flame, it took rescue crews an “extensive overhaul effort” to prevent the fire from spreading.

    While no one was injured in the blaze, three people were displaced from the home. The damage is estimated to be $170,000.
