A basement fire in Arlington’s East Falls Church neighborhood drew firefighters to a house near Tuckahoe Park this afternoon (Wednesday).
The fire was extinguished within 10 minutes of firefighters arriving at the two-story home on the 6400 block of 24th Street N., ACFD Battalion Chief Robert Eversburg said. The fire was contained to the room it started in.
There were no occupants home at the time of the fire, he said. One firefighter was injured, cutting his hand during the response.
Neighbors called 911 after seeing smoke coming from the roof, according to scanner traffic. When firefighters arrived, they forced entry into the home and found it filled with smoke.
The county fire marshal is now investigating the cause of the blaze.
Update: Fire has been extinguished. Units are checking for any extension and working on ventilation.
