(This article was updated at 1 p.m. with information from Deputy Fire Chief Dan Shaw.)

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.

The fire was quickly reported contained, and Fairfax Fire and Rescue reported it out at about 11:45 a.m.

In a video posted on social media at about 12:45 p.m., Deputy Fire Chief Dan Shaw said the two adult residents were out of the townhome when crews arrived; however, two pets were still inside.

“We were able to effectively put the fire out and keep it contained to the basement,” Shaw said. “[We were also] able to remove the two cats and get them back to the owners.”

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