Local First Responder Quarantined As Precaution After Exposure Outside Loudoun County

On Saturday, March 7, 2020, the Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System was informed that a System member had come in contact with an individual outside of Loudoun County who has since tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Out of an abundance of caution, the System member, who has no symptoms of illness, has been self-quarantined since learning of the exposure yesterday morning and poses no threat to Loudoun County residents or fellow first responders. Specific details about the individual will not be released to protect the System member’s privacy. It is important to keep in mind that there have been no confirmed COVID-19 cases in Loudoun County.

Loudoun County government officials are working closely with their regional and state partners to coordinate communications and resources and effectively respond to the situation. Any additional information will be provided as appropriate. For official information on Loudoun County’s COVID-19 response and what measures you can take to protect yourself, please visit www.loudoun.gov/coronavirus or call the Loudoun County Health Department at 703-737-8300.

Purcellville Single Family Home Fire Displaces a Family of Two

Purcellville, VA. - Loudoun County Fire Officials determine cause and offer safety tips after Friday night’s house fire displaces a family of two.

At approximately 10:00 p.m. on Friday, March 6th, 2020, Loudoun County’s Emergency Communications Center received a 9-1-1 call from a resident stating that their home was on fire in the 200 block of East G Street in Purcellville. Fire and rescue units from Purcellville, Round Hill, Hamilton, Philomont, Leesburg, Ashburn and Loudoun Heights were dispatched to the incident along with accompanying Command Officers. Firefighters arrived on the scene to find active fire in the rear of the home with possible fire extension to the inside. The homeowners were located safely outside.

Firefighters aggressively attacked the fire in the rear as additional crews checked for any extension to the interior of the home. Crews discovered fire had begun to spread into the walls and floor joist areas and worked quickly to extinguish the remainder of fire.

One resident was evaluated by paramedics on the scene and one firefighter was transported to a local area hospital for evaluation. Two residents were displaced from their home and are being assisted by the American Red Cross. The Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s Office determined the cause of the fire was accidental due to hot ashes from the fireplace igniting nearby combustibles in and around the fireplace. The damages are estimated at $200,000.

It is important to note that the occupants were alerted to the fire by multiple smoke alarms which activated in the home. The smoke alarms allowed the family precious moments to remove themselves from danger and call for help, avoiding potential injury and more extensive damages.

Each year Loudoun firefighters respond to devastating fires caused by improper disposal of hot coals or ashes from fireplaces, wood stoves, pellet stoves, grills, fire pits and even cigarette butts. Residents must use caution when disposing of fireplace ashes or any hot materials in or around your home. It is critical to soak ashes thoroughly with water, in a metal container with a lid, and allow them to cool for 48 hours. The metal container should be kept outside, a safe distance away from your home or any other structure By taking these additional measures, you can help ensure these items are appropriately extinguished and do not pose a fire hazard to you or your neighbors.

For additional fire prevention and safety information, visit www.loudoun.gov/firemarshal or call 703-737-8600.

Do you all offer any First Aid teaching for a group of Cub Scouts?
Saw an accident happen at the light right at the westbound rt 7 bypass; far left lane. A minivan plowed into the back of a pickup truck. Everyone ok?
A quick hello from the team at Reebok at the Premium Outlets in Leesburg. We appreciate you sacrifice to keeping our community safe. February 22-23 we are having a first responders appreciation event. Show you ID or badge to receive an additional 20% off.
On the road the past 2 mornings I have had a person with Maryland license plate number 0083 PFD silver Ford who has Loudoun County Virginia Fire Department on it that has been driving on 522 toward Winchester, VA between 445am-500am who is passing on solid lines, speeds in excess of 65mph in a 55mph and 45 mph zone, and tailgating other motorists. He did this to me yesterday and even after several attempts of tapping my brakes because he was following me so close I could not see his headlights in my rear view mirror on a dual lane highway that he could have passed me on--I practically stopped on the road just to get him to go around just for us to end up at same stop light. You sir firefighter are the exact type of driver that causes the fatalities on the highway that I am sure you have seen in your job. You should be ashamed and I am making it my mission to ensure your chain of command is aware of your poor driving skills and possible deadly actions should you cause a collision.
I would like to give a shout out to the crew of Loudon County Fire and Rescue! This weekend while in route to prepare for my stepdaughter's wedding, her florist was in a car accident. The crew went above and beyond by making the flower delivery to the home venue. The flowers were beautiful, and we are beyond grateful for the help of the Loudon County Fire and Rescue for making sure that her day was truly special!
In lieu of flowers the Colby Family would greatly appreciate any financial donations, due to the sudden loss of their daughter Kelly 5 months ago, Buddy and Janet assuming guardianship of their granddaughter and now Janet and the family having to deal with the loss of husband Buddy. The Family would like to thank you in advance for any donations. Michael (Please share with friends) The Colby Family Fund c/o Michael OʼBrien P.O.
