BREAKING: Two-Alarm Fire in Del Ray Area

Firefighters from Alexandria, Arlington and surrounding jurisdictions responded Friday night to a two-alarm fire in the Del Ray area.

The fire on the 400 block of E. Bellefonte Avenue was first reported just before 10 p.m. Arriving firefighters encountered heavy fire and sounded a second alarm.

The fire has since been extinguished, though a large emergency response remains on scene.

No injuries were reported. The Alexandria fire union said via Twitter that the fire is believed to have broken out in a dryer.

“Fire began in a dryer and extended through the walls into the cockloft area,” IAFF Local 2141 said via Twitter. “Crews worked quickly to keep the fire from spreading to multiple units.”
