VIDEO/PHOTOS: It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Superman, Supergirl, Spiderman and Captain America! Fairfax County Fire and Rescue superheroes dropped by Inova Children’s Hospital in Falls Church for a special surprise Tuesday. “Good to hop up?” Loren Jewell asked her fellow firefighters as she checked her rappelling gear. Jewell swapped turnouts for a cape to become Supergirl Tuesday. She’s part of Fairfax County Fire and Rescue and brought some super support to the young patients. Battalion Chief Matt Burns was right beside her, dressed in his own elaborate costume. “Captain America by night, my alter ego,” Burns said with a smile. “The whole reason firefighters become firefighters is to do something for their community and the kids are always the ones closest to our heart and this is best about,” he told 7News Reporter Victoria Sanchez.
