Leesburg Apartment Fire Caused by Inappropriately Discarded Smoking Materials

The Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s Office is issuing an important warning and offering safety tips after another Loudoun County fire is attributed to the improper disposal of smoking materials.

Just before 3:00 a.m., Monday, March 29, 2021, the Loudoun County Emergency Communication Center received a 911 call from a resident stating that there was a fire on the balcony that was spreading into their apartment. 911 operators advised the residents to evacuate and as they did, they pulled the fire alarm pull station to alert other residents to the fire.

Fire and rescue units from Leesburg, Lansdowne, Ashburn, and Lucketts, were dispatched to 96 Heritage Way, in Leesburg for the reported structure fire. Firefighters arrived on scene to find active smoke and fire visible from the 3rd-floor balcony. Firefighters immediately used hoselines to extinguish the fire in the third-floor apartment that had spread to the adjacent attic space. A quick interior attack by firefighters had the fire under control within 20 minutes their arrival.

Two adult occupants and two animals were displaced from the apartment. There were no civilian injuries or Firefighter injuries. The Loudoun County Fire Marshal's Office determined fire was caused by improperly discarded smoking materials with damages estimated at $30,000. These fires are preventable by following a few simple tips:
• If you smoke, do so outside.
• Use a deep, sturdy ashtray and be sure it is placed on a surface where it will not tip over.
• Place cigarettes in proper containers such as metal or ceramic pots filled with sand. Never use plastic containers or anything that holds potting soil. Be sure to clean out cigarette butt containers often.
• Place containers away from the house. Never place containers on front porches, decks, or just outside the door.
• Soak cigarette butts and ashes in water before throwing them away. Hot ashes can smolder for days.
• Test smoke alarms monthly and replace units as specified by the manufacturer’s instructions.

For additional fire prevention and life safety information, please visit Loudoun.gov/fire or call the Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s Office at 703-737-8600.

03/14/2021

Molly Williams was the first recorded female firefighter in the United States. She was a slave owned by a New York merchant, and was at the Oceanus Fire House in 1818 when a blizzard hit the city and an influenza outbreak knocked all the male volunteers off their feet.

When a fire call came in, Molly Williams— in her checked apron and calico dress — was the only one standing. She hauled out the pumper with as much strength and speed as any man and answered the call to duty.

03/12/2021

A single-family home fire in the Farmwell Hunt Community of Ashburn critically injures one and displaces a family of four in the Ashburn District of Loudoun County on early Friday morning.

At approximately 4:45 a.m. on Friday, March 12, 2021, fire and rescue units from Ashburn, Moorefield, Lansdowne, Sterling, Kincora, Leesburg, and Fairfax County, along with numerous command staff officers, responded to a fire in a single-family home. First arriving units found a two-story, single-family structure with a large volume of fire presenting from the rear of the structure, extending to the attic and roof areas.

Fire Marshals remind residents to stay vigilant and only use candles in a safe manner. Candles should be placed on a sturdy, nonflammable surface, away from children, pets and anything that can burn. Candles require constant supervision by an adult, and you must ensure that candles are completely extinguished before leaving the area. A safer alternative is using flameless candles that still look and smell like real candles.

I want to shout out the folks at Loudoun County Fire and Rescue. My daughter had a second birthday today and daddy burnt the tacos 😣. You guys were SO fast to respond and upon hearing it was my daughter’s birthday gave the kiddos a truck tour and souvenir hats. So grateful to have you guys looking over our community 💕
This is awesome news. Thanks Loudoun EMS for having whole blood available for trauma patients.
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 Wi******er, 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.
