SCFR Units Respond to Late Structure Fire

Just before 9 p.m. on Wednesday, May 19th, units with Stafford County Fire and Rescue (SCFR) were dispatched for a reported structure fire in the 00 block of Red Bud Circle near Embrey Mill Road. First arriving units marked on scene less than five minutes later and reported heavy smoke showing from the attached garage of a single-family home.  Smoke conditions were also reported throughout the residence. 

There were eight occupants in the residence at the time, six of whom lived there. All were able to self-evacuate prior to the arrival of units and none reported injuries. The first was marked under control in less than 15 minutes. Smoke alarms were present and working at the time of the fire. 

The Stafford County Fire Marshal’s Office determined the fire originated in the garage and was accidental. The residence is temporarily uninhabitable and the residents denied assistance from the American Red Cross.

SCFR units were assisted on scene by Quantico Fire and Emergency Services
