    Fire destroys Leesburg home

    An early-morning fire March 9 destroyed a single family home in the Greenway Farms development of Leesburg.

    Leesburg Fire Dept. units were called around 5 a.m. to a home on the 400 block of Lawford Drive. The entire home was involved in the fire and two nearby homes were threatened.

    Fire and rescue units initiated an attack to both extinguish the bulk of the flame and protect nearby houses.

    The four residents in the house were able to escape, but all required medical treatment. Two people were taken to area burn center, and the other two were treated locally.

    The Loudoun County Fire Marshal's Office determined the fire was caused from improperly discarded smoking materials. Damages to the home, as well as neighboring homes, is estimated to total $670,000.
    Comments

    Smoking REALLY kills, or in this case almost kills.  When I moved to NOVA years ago, a house adjacent to mine had the same thing happen.  Except, 5 people died, for the careless actions of one.  So sorry for this family’s misfortune.


    The couple that lived in the home did not smoke. The people visiting them that day did.


    So lucky they got out alive…..hopefully they stop smoking.
