(Updated at 9 p.m.) No one was injured Friday night (November 19) after a two-alarm fire in a duplex in the heart of Del Ray.
The Alexandria Fire Department was called at around 6:16 p.m. after smoke was reported to be coming from the rear of a two-story duplex in the 100 block of E. Del Ray Avenue, according to Battalion Chief David Plunkett.
“There is extensive damage to both homes,” Plunkett told ALXnow. “Units will stay on the scene for a few more hours, and the nearby roads will be closed.”
Two adults and a child were displaced by the blaze, and were assisted by the American Red Cross.
Fire investigators are at the scene and the cause of the blaze and where it originated have not yet been determined.
Coincidentally, the incident occurred just days after the fire department performed drills at a residential building just a few blocks away.

This week, our first responders had the opportunity to train and run various drills in a residential building on E Del Ray Ave. They took a break for a bit to chat about fire safety and show off their gear and apparatus with some kids in the area. #traineveryday #stayready pic.twitter.com/0XJD8XKl5B
