Here is an update on yesterday’s fire at the 1757 Golf Club.

Fire Destroys Storage Facility at Loudoun Golf Course

Sterling, VA. – The Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating yesterday’s fire at the 1757 Golf Club that destroyed a large storage building and the equipment inside.
Just before 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 26th, 2019, fire and rescue units from Kincora, Moorefield, Sterling Park, Ashburn, Cascades, Dulles South, and Fairfax County, responded to the 1757 Golf Club, at 45120 Waxpool Road in Sterling, for a structure fire. Callers reported fire in a large, outdoor storage building that housed golf carts and equipment.

Firefighters arrived and found heavy fire and smoke conditions coming from a 75’ x 100’ shed. All occupants had evacuated and were accounted for. Due to the advanced stage of the fire and threat of collapse, firefighters used large-caliber hose streams to knock down the fire from outside the building. The storage shed was reported to contain approximately 45-60 golf carts at the time of the fire. Fortunately, the shed was located a safe distance away and posed no hazards to the main ‘Pro Shop’ area of the facility.

Once the bulk of the fire was knocked down, the Loudoun County Fire and Rescue Hazardous Materials Response Team worked to mitigate any chemical contamination resulting from the fire and building contents. Firefighters remain on scene to assist both the Hazardous Materials Team and the Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s Office as they investigate the cause of the incident and monitor the scene for additional hazards. There were no injuries to civilians or first responders.

A 9’ tree decorated in ornaments with special meaning stands outside the entrance to the Fairfax County Public Safety Headquarters. During this holiday season, the Fairfax County Police Association wanted a way to illustrate the epidemic of death by suicide and line of duty deaths that continue to plague our public safety community. The tree has 330 blue (Law Enforcement) ornaments and 176 red (Fire and Rescue) ornaments to represent the number of death by suicide and line of duty deaths nationally in 2019 year to date among law enforcement and fire and rescue personnel. A gold ribbon and silver 9-1-1 ornament represent death by suicide of 9-1-1 dispatchers and call-takers. #SuicidePrevention

Early Morning Fire in Sterling Leaves One Deceased, One Injured

Sterling, VA. – The Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s Office is actively investigating the cause of an early morning fire in a Sterling townhome that left one deceased and one injured.

Just before 3:00 a.m., Sunday, October 6, 2019, the Loudoun Emergency Communications Center (ECC) received a 9-1-1 call for a possible house fire in the 200 block of Giles Place in Sterling. Loudoun County fire and rescue crews from Cascades, Kincora, Sterling Park, Ashburn, Leesburg, and Fairfax County, VA as well as Command Staff responded to the scene. Additional information from 9-1-1 callers indicated that a person was possibly trapped inside the townhouse.

Firefighters arrived to find smoke coming from a two-story townhouse and requested a Rapid Intervention Task Force and second alarm for assistance. Emergency crews found one adult outside the residence suffering from burn injuries. The patient was immediately transported by ambulance to the Burn Center at MedStar Washington Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Firefighters aggressively attacked the fire from both the interior and exterior of the townhouse and continued searching for additional occupants. Fire and rescue crews quickly located an adult male who was brought outside to waiting EMS crews. Paramedics immediately began advanced life support care and transported the victim to a local hospital with life threatening injuries. The adult male was pronounced dead at the hospital. One resident refused medical treatment on the scene.

The fire was extinguished quickly, avoiding fire damage to the adjacent townhomes. The fire is under investigation by the Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s Office in conjunction with the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.

Burn safety: Protect your child from burns

Many ordinary things in a home — including bath water, food and electrical outlets — can cause childhood burns. Here are some burn safety tips from Mayo Clinic

To prevent burns at home:

Reduce water temperature. Set the thermostat on your hot water heater to below 120 F (48.9 C). Aim for bath water around 100 F (38 C). Check the temperature of bath water with your hand before putting your child in the bath.

Avoid hot spills. Don't cook, drink, or carry hot beverages or foods while holding a child. Keep hot foods and liquids away from table and counter edges. Don't use tablecloths or place mats, which young children can pull down. Turn the handles of your pots and pans toward the rear of the stove and use back burners when possible. Don't leave the stove unattended when you're cooking.

Establish 'no' zones. Block access to the stove, fireplace, space heaters and radiators. Don't leave a child unattended in a room when these items are in use.

Keep hot devices out of reach. Store items designed to get hot, such as clothes irons or curling irons, unplugged and out of reach.

Click on the link below for the full list.

Follow these tips to protect your child from burns.
