JUST IN: Firefighters Extinguish Blaze in Ballston Townhome

Arlington firefighters extinguished a fire at a Ballston townhome this afternoon (Friday).

First responders were called to the 600 block of N. Oxford Street, near Mosaic Park, for a blaze around 3:15 p.m.

The fire was concentrated in the basement, and extinguished without incident. No injuries resulted from the fire.

The fire marshal is still investigating the exact cause of the blaze, but scanner traffic suggests it started due to a washer or dryer in the basement.
