Improperly discarded fireworks from a Fourth of July celebration were the cause of a Herndon house fire that resulted in $371,290 in damages.
A dozen people were home at the time of the fire and safely evacuated the two-story house. One individual was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at a local hospital.
Investigators have determined that the fire started accidentally near a sliding glass door inside the screen-in patio, where fireworks were improperly discarded, according to the FCFRD.
“Smoke alarms were present, but activated after the fire was discovered,” the department said.
All 12 occupants have been displaced by the fire, which was one of several blazes that firefighters had to address the night of July 4.
A second house fire in the Fair Oaks area caused a reported $1 million in property damages. The cause in that incident remains under investigation.
