Stafford Home Damaged by Fire

At 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 18th, units with Stafford County Fire and Rescue (SCFR) responded for a reported structure fire in the 100 block of Northampton Blvd. in the northern part of Stafford County. First arriving units marked on location approximately five minutes later and reported fire showing from the front and side of a two-story, single family home. Crews found the fire had extended into the attic of the home. The fire was marked under control approximately 20 minutes later.

All occupants self-evacuated prior to the arrival of units and none reported injuries. The home suffered substantial damage and the six occupants were temporarily displaced as a result but denied the assistance of the American Red Cross. Smoke alarms were present in the home and alerted the occupants.

The fire is under investigation by the Stafford County Fire Marshal’s Office. SCFR units were assisted on scene by Quantico Fire and Emergency Services and Prince William County Fire and Rescue. Fairfax County Fire and Rescue and Fauquier County Fire and Rescue assisted with station fills during the incident.
