(Updated at 1:45 p.m.) Firefighters from Arlington and Alexandria are on scene of an apartment fire in Arlandria.
The fire broke out at a garden-style apartment building on the 3800 block of Old Dominion Blvd shortly before 1 p.m.
A second alarm has been sounded for the blaze, but initial reports suggest the bulk of the fire — which started in one of the apartments — is now out. One person is being brought to a local hospital for reported burns, while another is being evaluated by medics for possible injuries, according to scanner traffic.
Shortly after arriving on scene, firefighters worked to evacuate residents from the smoke-filled structure.
Officials on scene say at least five residents will be displaced by the fire.
