FAIRFAX - On June 24 at approximately 10:58 p.m., Fairfax County and City of Alexandria firefighters were dispatched for a reported house fire in the 3400 block of Beechcraft Drive in the Hybla Valley section of Fairfax County.

Fire officials said they arrived on the scene of a one-story, single family home with heavy fire showing. Firefighters quickly went to work to contain and extinguish the advanced fire.

The house was not occupied at the time of the fire. A neighbor discovered the fire and called 9-1-1. There were no working smoke alarms inside the house.

Fire Investigators determined that the fire started on the exterior wooden deck. Fire officials said the cause of the fire was accidental in nature and was the result of an unattended charcoal grill that ignited the deck and spread to the house.
