Stafford Fire and Rescue says just after 4am on Saturday morning, units were called to a structure fire along Melanie Hollow Lane in the southeastern part of County.

Fire and Rescue spokeswoman Katie Brady says callers reported a home on fire. She says crews arrived within five minutes and found a two-story, single family home with fire showing throughout the second floor. Brady says the fire was brought under control in about 20 minutes.

The home was occupied by seven individuals at the time of the fire. All were able to evacuate prior to the arrival of units on scene. They were evaluated; one was transported for non-life-threatening injuries. Smoke alarms did sound appropriately within the residence. The occupants are receiving assistance from the American Red Cross.

Following an investigation by the Stafford County Fire Marshal’s Office, Brady says the fire has been determined to be accidental, and electrical in nature.

Brady says units were assisted on scene by the Fredericksburg Fire Department, Spotsylvania County Fire, Rescue, and Emergency Management and Quantico Fire & Emergency Services.
