Firefighters Battle Overnight House Fire on Washington Blvd

Arlington firefighters doused a blaze in a Northwest Arlington home early this morning (Thursday).

The fire broke out at a home along the 6200 block of Washington Blvd, in the Highland Park-Overlee Knolls neighborhood, around 1 a.m.

The blaze took firefighters around an hour to put out, according to the fire department’s Twitter account. No one was inside the home when the fire started, the department added.

The county fire marshal is still investigating what caused the blaze, and first responders briefly returned to the home around noon today to continue the investigation, prompting a few road closures in the area.
