Two Residents Displaced by Great Falls House Fire

A house fire in Great Falls has displaced two residents and caused roughly $105,450 in damages.

Units from the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department and Loudoun County Fire and Rescue battled the fire at the two-story, single-family home on the 10200 block of Forest Lake Drive Thursday night.

Due to limited fire hydrants in the area, a tanker task force was used to extinguish the fire, which ws started in the garage.

Two residents evacuated their home after the homeowner smelled smoke. Smoke alarms did not activate because the fire was isolated to the garage.

It’s unclear what caused the fire, according to the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department.
