An early-morning fire in South Riding Thursday drew rescue units from Loudoun County, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority and Fairfax County.

The townhouse fire was sparked at 25540 Hussar Terrace.

According to Loudoun Supervisor Matt Letourneau, the fire, which was rapidly spreading from the second and third levels of the home, was quickly knocked down around 4:30 a.m.

“Units arrived within four minutes and found a rapidly advancing fire on the exterior of a three-story townhome,” Letourneau (R-Dulles) wrote on his public Facebook page.

There were no injuries at the scene, despite significant structure damage tallying nearly $101,000.

The Fire Marshal's investigation determined that the cause of the fire was smoking materials placed in a potted plant on the deck of the exterior of the home, Letourneau noted.

“This happens with some frequency, so please help educate friends and neighbors about the need to properly distinguish smoking materials,” he said.
