Fairfax County Fire & Rescue Department PIO Dan Schmidt confirms the bodies of two men were found inside a burning home on Heming Avenue in North Springfield this morning. The fire was reported around 6:40 AM. First arriving firefighters found fire in the basement with two residents not accounted for.
Schmidt tells STATter911.com that in the early stages of the fire, firefighters from Engine 422 ran into trouble when the kitchen floor began collapsing around them. The crew apparently became separated by the hole(s) in the floor. Other firefighters assisted them in getting out safely. Schmidt says one firefighter has been hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.
Officials aren’t yet saying where in the home the bodies were found.
