Units responded to a townhouse fire Friday, December 4, 2015, at approximately 3:20 a.m., in the Reston area of Fairfax County. The home is located at 11835 Saint Trinians Court.

Firefighters encountered fire coming from all three stories of the middle unit townhouse upon arrival.  An adult female had self-evacuated prior to the arrival of firefighters and was suffering from potential life-threatening injuries.

Firefighters initiated an aggressive fire attack and quickly brought the fire under control in approximately 30 minutes.  A second alarm was initiated and more than 60 firefighters worked to contain the fire to the one townhome. No one else was home when the fire broke out.

The injured woman was flown by Fairfax County Police Department’s Medevac to the Washington Hospital Center.

Fire and Police Investigators are currently investigating the cause and damage estimate.
