Two house fires caused damage in Arlington over the weekend.

A fire in the attic of a home on the 900 block of Patrick Henry Drive, in the Dominion Hills neighborhood near Seven Corners, caused significant damage late Saturday night. Two residents were displaced by the fire and the Red Cross responded to the scene to assist them, according to Arlington County Fire Department spokesman Capt. Gregg Karl.

Another house fire was reported around the same time on the 2500 block of Walter Reed Drive, at the Windgate townhouse community. The fire was on the first floor of the home and was quickly extinguished.

Both fires are under investigation, Karl said.

    I give kudos to Arlington County FD for taking these fires seriously. Although there was only 1 townhouse on fire at Windgate, we had a lot of trucks come just in case the fire spread to the other houses in the row. We have lots of trees and live in rows of six. it is quite comforting to know that the FD knows the risks to the rest of us. it could have been really bad if the wind had been blowing like it was in Queens during Hurricane Sandy!
