(Updated at 3:10 p.m.) Firefighters from Arlington and Alexandria extinguished a house fire in Arlington’s Nauck neighborhood today (Wednesday).
The fire broke out in a two-story duplex on the 3700 block of S. Four Mile Run Drive — a narrow residential street that runs parallel to the main route — around 1 p.m. Arriving firefighters reported smoke coming from the front door and the occupants of the home standing outside.
As of 1:30 p.m. the fire was said to be under control, though possible hoarding conditions complicated the firefighting operation.
The fire department said medics assessed one person who was inside the home at the time of the fire for injuries.
