It was a busy week for the Alexandria Fire Department.

Today, AFD responded to a two-car crash on Seminary Road, which temporarily shut down westbound traffic on the street.

On Wednesday, firefighters battled a blaze in an Old Town home. Three firefighters were non-fatally injured in the operation, with one being a burn injury.

Two adult residents were displaced by the fire. The fire caused approximately $1.2 million in damages, a release said.

According to the release:

AFD’s Fire Marshal’s Office conducted an origin and cause investigation and determined the area of origin was a bedroom on the second floor. There was one smoke alarm in the home, but it did not activate at the time of the fire. The cause of the fire remains under investigation as fire marshals continue to review the scene of the incident.
