BREAKING: Firefighters Battle Apartment Fire in Old Town

A fire in an apartment prompted a large emergency response in Old Town, near City Hall, early Thursday afternoon.

The fire broke out shortly after noon, at a building on the 400 block of N. Cameron Street. Initial reports suggest it was a fire in the kitchen of a third floor apartment, with the flames visible from the street.

Firefighters arriving on scene reported smoke billowing out of the eaves of the building. They worked quickly to extinguish the blaze before it spread to other parts of the building.

As of 1 p.m., the fire department was still on scene, starting cleanup work and an investigation into the cause of the fire.

The flames broke out around the same time as the Alexandria Fire Department responded to the smell of something burning at T.C. Williams High School.
