Virginia Fire Station Catches Fire; Firetruck Destroyed

Fairfax County, Virginia, firefighters had to battle a blaze inside their own station early Sunday morning.

An alarm around 12:45 a.m. alerted crews that one of their firetrucks, rescue squad #426, inside the station was on fire. The fire spread to the roof of the station, and a second alarm was called for additional crews.

It took about 45 minutes to get the fire under control. There were no injuries and no impact for service in the community.

Investigators are examining the squad to determine why it caught on fire.
