Arlington County firefighters responded to an apartment kitchen fire in Pentagon City this afternoon.
The fire was reported just after 1 p.m. on the second floor of the Acadia at Metropolitan Park apartment building (575 12th Street S.). The flames started on a stove and were ultimately extinguished by a sprinkler system, but not before it filled the floor with smoke.
Firefighters are on scene working to remove the smoke. “Significant” water damage has been reported in the apartment where the fire broke out.
One apartment resident is being evaluated by medics for smoke inhalation, according to the fire department.
Police closed 12th Street S. during the incident due to the emergency response.
