The Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s Office remains on scene investigating the cause of a large fire in a Sterling apartment building.

Just after 10:15 a.m. on Friday, April 30, 2021, fire and rescue units from Sterling Park, Cascades, Kincora, Ashburn, Moorefield, and Fairfax County, were dispatched to 1220 Chase Heritage Circle in Sterling for a reported structure fire. The Loudoun County Communications Center received a 911 call reporting active fire and smoke on the third floor of the apartment building.

Firefighters arrived on scene to find a large, three-story apartment building with heavy fire and smoke on the third floor that was rapidly extending to the roof. Residents were being evacuated upon arrival of first responders and a quick search confirmed all occupants were out of the structure. 

Fire and rescue crews knocked the bulk of the fire down with an interior fire attack and the ladder truck’s master stream. Firefighters remain on the scene extinguishing hot spots and assisting the Fire Marshal’s Office investigation. 

Currently, 14 apartments have been damaged. The American Red Cross is currently on the scene aiding the displaced residents. One civilian was treated and transported for smoke inhalation. Three Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office deputies that assisted in evacuating residents were also treated at local area hospitals for minor smoke inhalation.
