Updated at 9:45 a.m. on 12/23/2022 — Five people were displaced by Tuesday’s Lorton house fire, which caused $244,162 in damages, the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department said Wednesday (Dec. 21). The cause remains under investigation.
Earlier: A one-story house right by the Potomac River in Lorton was consumed by a massive fire early this morning.
Units from the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department responded to the scene in the 11300 block of River Road in the Mason Neck area around 2:30 a.m., with Prince William County firefighters assisting.
“Arriving units reported significant fire coming from all sides of the home,” the department said in a tweet at 4:13 a.m., noting that by that time, the fire was under control.
Despite the size of the fire, all occupants were found, and no injuries to either occupants or firefighters were reported.
“Investigators have not determined an estimate for the damage as of yet,” an FCFRD spokesperson said.
