An early morning fire at Sutton Ridge Condos caused $1 million in damage and has displaced 18 people. According to the ActionMcNews video above, an air conditioning unit may have been the culprit -- but that's not been confirmed.
A fire in Reston brought in over 100 firefighters to the emergency, where several condominiums were on fire.More video from our BFFs at Patch, if you're into such things:
Fairfax County Fire and Rescue responded to the three-alarm structure fire at 1:20 in the morning on Tuesday. The structure is made up of 18 separate condominiums and is located at 11404 Gate Hill Place.
It took firefighters 90 minutes to get the fire under control and nine of the 18 condominiums were affected by the fire. Five units suffered major fire, smoke, and water damage, and four other units received light to moderate damage. The other nine units were able to get back to their homes after electricity was restored.
The effort was assisted by Trey Brown, 17, and his two friends, who were out skateboarding in their neighborhood when they saw flames. Fire officials credit them with helping banging on doors and helping getting residents out. Trey called 911.
Update on the cleanup ater the fire.
Another ActionMcNews report is calling Brown and his friends heroes.
Good on them.
