Upward of two dozen emergency vehicles, including over a dozen fire trucks, responded to Hearthstone Court for a fire at a townhome Monday morning.

According to Fairfax County Fire and Rescue, smoke was showing from a townhome in the 11500 block of Hearthstone Court, off Soapstone Drive, at about 11 a.m. Monday.

Fire marshals are on the scene investigating the blaze, Shaw said.
