On Friday, November 14th, at approximately 5:30 a.m., fire and rescue units were dispatched to a structure fire in a two-story single family home located in the 14000 block of Grayson Road in Woodbridge.
Upon arrival, fire and rescue crews entered the home and discovered a fire in a first floor bedroom. Firefighters proceeded to attack and extinguish the fire as they searched for further extension of fire; no further extension was found; however, smoke and heat damage was discovered throughout the first and second floor.
No injuries reported.
The occupants, 3 adults, who were home at the time of the fire, were alerted to the fire by a smoke detector allowing them to safely evacuate the home.
The fire is currently under investigation by the Fire Marshal’s Office.
Prince William County Department of Fire and Rescue (www.pwcgov.org/fire) would like to remind residents that Smoke Alarms www.pwcgov.org/SmokeAlarms save lives and your chance of survival doubles when a home contains both smoke alarms and a fire sprinkler system www.pwcgov.org/Sprinklers. Remember to:\
- Install smoke detectors on every level within the home including the basement and outside each sleeping area.
- Test smoke detectors monthly and replace batteries as needed.
- Change batteries when you change clocks (spring and fall).
- Replace smoke detectors every 10 years.
