Fire Marshals estimate an early morning fire did over half a million dollars in damage to a residence in the 25,000 block of Leonard Drive in Chantilly on Wednesday, June 7, 2023.

Just before 5:30 a.m., the Loudoun County Emergency Communications Center received multiple 911 calls advising of fire and smoke coming from a home on Leonard Drive. Fire and rescue units from Dulles South, Kirkpatrick Farms, Arcola, Moorefield, Metro-Washington Airports Authority – Dulles, and Fairfax County responded to the incident.

Firefighters arrived on the scene and found a single-family home, currently vacant, with significant fire and smoke conditions. Firefighters immediately worked to extinguish the fire as additional crews used hoselines to cool and protect the neighboring homes. Once the bulk of the fire was under control, firefighters worked to extinguish hot spots and further protect nearby structures.

The Loudoun County Fire and Rescue Fire Marshal’s Office has determined the fire to be incendiary in nature and continues its investigation into the incident. There were no injuries to civilians or emergency responders. There were no residents displaced as the fire structure was unoccupied at the time of the incident and damage incurred by both neighboring homes did not displace those residents.

If you have any information regarding this incident, please contact the Loudoun County Emergency Communication's Center (ECC) at 703-777-0637 and ask to speak to the On-Duty Fire Marshal.
