Fire destroys Leesburg home
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.
