Improperly discarded fireworks caused nearly $80,000 in damages to a Herndon home on Sunday (June 13).
No injuries were reported at the home on the 13100 block of Rounding Run Circle.
According to the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department, the fire started in the garage where fireworks were improperly discarded.
The fire department is encouraging residents to dispose fireworks using the same procedure for fireplace ashes. Fireworks should be placed in a metal container, doused with water, and covered with a metal lid away from the house.
Four residents, who were home at the time, were displaced due to the incident. The fire was largely limited to the attached garage.
This is the second fire this year caused by improper disposal of fireworks.
