Alexandria fire crews extinguished an early morning house fire Wednesday in the 300 block of Park Road.

At 5:32 a.m., the Alexandria Fire Department responded to a report of smoke and fire from the walls of a single-family home just off King Street near the George Washington Masonic Memorial.

The residents were alerted to the fire by smoke alarms and safely evacuated the home, according to an AFD spokesperson.

Upon arrival, Alexandria crews discovered the fire inside the walls in the second floor and attic of the Cape Cod-style house. A second alarm was requested and the fire was extinguished. Arlington and Fairfax county crews assisted on the call.

Alexandria fire marshals are still investigating the cause of the blaze. The estimated cost of damages was not immediately known.

The occupants of the home were able to make their own relocation arrangements.

There were no injuries to any of the responding firefighters. A DASH bus was brought in to assist in warming efforts on a frigid morning in Alexandria.
