                              Victim Located Inside Home after House Fire

Loudoun County, VA -
The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office and the Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s Office are conducting an investigation after authorities located a body inside a home after last night’s house fire in Lucketts.

Shortly after 5:00pm, Tuesday July 25th, Engine 610 from Lucketts was dispatched for an investigation in the area of Bald Hill Road and Steed Hill Lane after a passerby reported seeing smoke in the area. Upon further investigation, Engine 610 found a two story, single family home with fire on the first and second floors. The assignment was upgraded to a structure fire which brought units from Lovettsville, Hamilton, Leesburg, Purcellville, Frederick Co. MD, along with Fire and Rescue command staff and the Loudoun County Fire Marshal's Office.
 
Due to the amount of fire involvement of the structure, units initiated an exterior attack on the fire to safely extinguish the fire. Crews were presented with water supply and access challenges as the home is in a rural part of the county with no fire hydrants and very narrow driveway and access roads. Fire operations continued throughout the night to ensure the fire was completely extinguished. 

Early this morning, officials were able to access and search through what remained of the home. At approximately 1:00pm, authorities discovered a body in the residence. The Fatal Fire Task Force, with members of the Loudoun County Fire Marshal's Office and the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office, remain on-site conducting their investigation. 

At this time, there are no further details about the cause of death, the cause of the fire, or the victim's identity.

More details will be released as they become available.
