Structure Fire – Kirkland Drive

On Wednesday, December 20th, around 1230 hrs, Box 0136 was sounded for the residential structure fire. Multiple callers stated that the house was well off and there was someone still inside.

Engine 1 arrived on scene to find a two-story, single-family dwelling with a basement, with fire showing on all sides. The decision was made to make a defensive attack after the occupant was confirmed to be out of the residence. The back of the house was bowed out, signaling to a possible structure collapse. A little bit into the incident, the entire back and parts of the sides of the house collapsed. Engine 1 utilized it’s deck gun and the blitz-fire, along with various handlines from Engine 1 and Engine 504 to extinguish the fire.

The fire is currently under investigation by the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office and the Fauquier County Fire/Rescue Fire Marshal.
