Loudoun County firefighters arrived to find smoke coming from a two-story townhouse and requested a Rapid Intervention Task Force and second alarm for assistance. Emergency crews found one adult outside the residence suffering from burn injuries. Firefighters aggressively attacked the fire from both the interior and exterior of the townhouse and continued searching for additional occupants. Crews quickly located an adult male who was brought outside. Paramedics immediately began advanced life support care and transported the victim to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. The adult male was pronounced dead at the hospital. Another resident refused medical treatment on the scene. The fire was extinguished quickly, avoiding fire damage to the adjacent townhomes.
