A Dale City family of five left home Wednesday night because their power was out.

Then, on Thursday morning, their house was destroyed by a fire, according to Prince William County Fire and Rescue Assistant Chief Matt Smolsky.

Fire crews were dispatched to the 3100 block of Burbank Lane in Dale City at 8:09 a.m. Thursday, July 18.

On arrival, crews encountered heavy fire conditions throughout the house and floors that were collapsing, according to a fire and rescue department Facebook post.

“Extensive efforts were needed to totally extinguish the fire,” the post said.

There were no injuries and no word yet on what started the blaze. Crews remained on the scene Thursday morning for overhaul operations. 

The Prince William County Fire Marshal’s Office is working to identify the cause of the fire, the Facebook post said.
