Lake Whippoorwill home destroyed by afternoon fire

Fire destroyed a home just north of Warrenton on Wednesday afternoon.

Reported at 12:30 p.m., the blaze took place on Kirkland Lane in the Lake Whippoorwill neighborhood, near P.B. Smith Elementary School.

Neighbors reported hearing an explosion.

“When crews arrived they found the two-story home was well involved with fire to include the basement,” Warrenton Volunteer Fire Chief Jason Golden wrote in an email Wednesday night.

Firefighters remained on the scene more than five hours, according to Chief Golden.

The fire produced no injury.

On Dec. 11, fire destroyed a home about a mile and a half away in the Warrenton Lakes subdivision.

The cause of the fire remained under investigation Wednesday.

Firefighters from Fauquier County, Warrenton, New Baltimore, Catlett, the federal Warrenton Training Center and Gainesville responded.
