Two residents have been displaced by a house fire that happened over the weekend in Herndon.

On Sunday (April 3) at around 12:30 a.m., fire units responded to a fire at a single-family home on the 1700 block of Whitewood Lane.

The fire also caused roughly $25,000 in damages.

The Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department said crews said the fire started in the basement, but was quickly brought under control.

Three people who were home at the time said they heard a popping sound and evacuated from the home.

So far, fire investigators believe that the fire started in the electric panel box.

No injuries were reported.
