Stafford Fire at Interstate Business Park off Warrenton Road
Stafford Fire and Rescue tells us that just after 9:30 P.M. Sunday night, SCFR units were dispatched for a reported structure fire in the 1300 block of Interstate Business Park just off of Warrenton Road.
First arriving units marked on scene approximately five minutes later to find smoke coming from the front roof line and two bay doors of a two story, subdivided warehouse building. A bystander was attempting to extinguish the fire with a garden hose and advised there was a fire in one of the upstairs office spaces.
Crews quickly began working to extinguish the fire, bringing the fire under control in approximately an hour due to difficult to access areas. A second alarm was struck, bringing additional resources to the scene.
The suite where the fire originated was not occupied at the time, and occupants of neighboring suites were able to self-evacuate without incident. One firefighter was transported for a minor illness.
The fire is under investigation by the Stafford County Fire Marshal’s Office. SCFR units were assisted on scene by the Fredericksburg Fire Department, Quantico Fire & Emergency Services and Fauquier County Department of Fire, Rescue and Emergency Management.
