An 11,000-square-foot house was destroyed by fire early Monday morning in Great Falls, Fairfax County Fire and Rescue investigators said.
Units responded to the fire 151 River Park Lane about 1 a.m.
When they arrived, firefighters encountered a large one-story home fully involved with fire. The home is located in a non-hydrant area of Great Falls, and fireighters called for additional tankers and resources. It took units several hours to bring the fire under control, fire officials said.
The six-bedroom, 8.5-bath home was for sale and not occupied. One firefighter was transported for a non-life threatening injury.
The home is a complete loss and the fire is under investigation.
