Second Stafford Home Damaged by Lightning
All occupants self-evacuated prior to the arrival of units and none reported injuries. The home suffered substantial damage and the three occupants were temporarily displaced as a result, but denied assistance of the American Red Cross. Smoke alarms were present but did not sound due to the location of the fire.
The fire is under investigation by the Stafford County Fire Marshal’s Office. SCFR units were assisted on scene by the Quantico Fire and Emergency Services.
