I'm starting to worry it may be a forest fire. I heard fire trucks in the distance and more coming and have heard them now for 20 minutes straight.

It was a house burning down in the back of the neighborhood in a culdesac.

Apparently, there were a bunch of kids and some pets in the basement that had no clue about the fire and somehow people alerted the family and got everybody out.

The fire fighters were still battling the fire 30+ minutes into it.

It's a sad and scary sight. I hope the family will be ok and I hope they have good insurance.

it was just a comment from a person on the street out there that there were kids in the basement... not sure about the parents, etc... sounded like there are a bunch of kids there... this all went down around 10:45-11 pm.. so they could have been down there playing video games or something..

I dont' know.. just what somebody said you know..

I saw a couple meteors coming down when I walked over to see this house. I think the aliens are raining down fire on FFX.

was a family of six, all got out safely.
i've heard fireworks were left on front porch, and am assuming they were smoldering.

people, be careful with your fireworks and grills. make sure you water down all shot-off fireworks with a hose when you're done. and with the grills, make sure if you're using a grill on the deck that anything on fire that falls out gets hosed down to the nth degree. there have been lots of fires started from tiny embers that go unseen until the family is inside, and by the time the notice, it's too late.

Damn it! Beat me to the punch line.

I was going to say "Kids, I told you! No fireworks in the house!"

I always douse burned out fireworks with water before throwing them out.

I wonder if homeowners insurance covers fireworks?

I live next door to the people's house that got burned down. I left yesterday evening at 8:00PM and saw the neighbors doing fountains and little BS fireworks, the parents were watching.

I got home at 12:30 AM could not turn into my court... About 3 fire trucks showed up. They were still battling the fire when I walked down, it started at 11PM... my neighbor said the kids lit fireworks from the porch. He also said the fire fighters were having trouble getting water from the fire hydrant so the house was burning for a while.

It sucks bc every year we all get together and do tight fireworks. Check out this video from 2 years ago in the same cul de sac...

I must have seen you. Who is or was the hot girl that comes on a foldable bike?
They were doing a very elaborated cook out. Burgers, Hot dogs, drinks. It was kind of celebration of a succesfull resignation. The house is gone. The only good thing standing is the nice ripe tomatoes on the left side of the house. Very nice neighbors though. Have to admit.

WTF is going on in Cabell's Mill with fireworks? Seriously. This house was about 1,000 feet from the house the blew up in 2007 from fireworks.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/07/16/AR2007071601632.html


If you live in this neighborhood, get rid of your fireworks. This neighborhood is snake-bit.

Trogdor your feet are off, but still close. Just go to Cabels Mill and you will definitely see a show of fireworks and drunks at the end of the col de sac. This is a disgrace and happens every year. And obviously they do not learn. Hopefully this webpage will serve as a reminder not to destroy your house by being stupid. And if you do not care if your house is gone, have some common courtesy people for your neighbors their families their kids. Time for congress to step up and make it illegal for street fireworks.

The guy that blew up his house because he was making fireworks in the garage lived in the next neighborhood after Cabell's Mill.

This one was just the most unfortunate kind! family just playing around having fun and didn't quite do all the safety things.

As for the other neighborhood, that guy was trying to make fireworks in his garage. that, is asking for problems, because you need a place that is ESD safe and you need to be disconnected from anything that can go wrong.

Cabell's Mill is a great neighborhood and there are fireworks and parties, but if people are responsible, we shouldn't have to give that up.

It's a sad time in life for this family. Any contractors or people out there who could help by giving them discounted services, this is the time to step up and be patriotic and humanitarian.

Accidents happen and people probably could have done things in a better way to prevent the accidents, but that doesn't mean the community shouldn't do what they can to help them. All those who can help just remember the insurance company offers accident forgiveness. I hope you will too!

Why are people sitting on the lawn drinking beers? There is table setup and people just watching the house like it is some entertainment. What is worse is people are probably inside? Hope they dont get hurt. Just trouble waiting to happen in the middle of this fine afternoon. Looks like the great people that live there, some dont have, well BRAINS!

People will care if they die in there. That is not safe. Let along alcohol and condemned buildings dont mix. It was a barbeque and beer fest. Total loss.

I hope the local paper covers the story of the aftermath. And the people going in an out of the house. Get their stuff? It will all stick like smoke. They are getting things like laundry baskets out. Not like that is sentamental. I feel sorry for the family. And I bet all the neighbors lit fireworks anyway. This should be example for Chairman Connelly to make a law that bans personal fireworks in Fairfax County. No personal fireworks within 20 miles of a big airport.

I just got wind of this posting here... first off the aftermath was not some kind of "beerfest" people have been saying. Yes the owner did enter the house but he was being very safe

AND NO we didn't do fireworks in the cul de sac this year bc of this incident. Get your facts straight

Was it legal for the owner to enter the house? Or might he face charges? The law is the law. Let insurance cover the lost items. And there are places he can get some clothes and food and shelter for a few days. I think Red Cross and Salvation Army offer that. They should not be too modest and accept it. It will help get some stuff off their minds. And hopefully their insurance will let them rebuild soon, before school, so the kids can not be impacted with their homework.

Sorry friendlyneighbor. I appologise. Did not realize you were police. Just make sure no one gets hurt. Any idea how long it will get to get the house rebuilt. Make sure they test the concrete and brick. Because that can smell like smoke for years. They might need to replace that.

I grew up in Cabells Mill and nothing like this ever happened when I was growing up. In fact, my parents loved the area so much when they sold their house they moved down the street to Fair Lakes Chase. It is a great neighborhood for kids to be raised in. Accidents happen and this was a very unfortunate one.

But, the fireworks guy back in 2007 was an interesting situation to witness. He was in denial about how bad the accident was at first.

This house obviously needs to be torn down, but what will they build in its place? The style of houses in this neighborhood is very unique, and I doubt HOA regulations permit anything other than an exact replica to be rebuilt on the lot... so is that possible? Or is this plot going to be expensive unbuildable parkland for quite some time?

Just curious. The house is still "standing" there all burned out and looks real funny. Thanks!

The house by 7 11 with fire was knocked down recently. it just takes months. And no one in rush to rebuild cabelles mills. their houses are getting nicer with the siding and keeping up lawns good job on keep architecture from homeowners good.
