Flames shot through the roof of the home in the 5900 block of Whippoorwill Drive when the first firefighters arrived around noon Wednesday.
A fire reported just before noon Wednesday did extensive damage to a home in the Lake Whippoorwill subdivision off Dumfries Road just north of Warrenton.

The first unit arrived to find “smoke and fire from the roof of a two-story, single family dwelling” in the 5900 block of Whippoorwill Drive, Warrenton Fire Chief Jason Koglin said.

After confirming all occupants had gotten out of the home, firefighters opened the second-story ceilings to attack the blaze, Chief Koglin said.

The Fauquier County Fire Marshal’s Office continues to investigate the fire’s origin.

“Two firefighters were evaluated on scene by EMS, one of which was transported to Fauquier Hospital for evaluation as a precaution and should be released no later than this evening,” Chief Koglin added.
