Haycock Road House Fire Ruled Arson

Vacant house fire occurred Saturday morning.


Representatives from the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department said Monday that a fire in a vacant single-family home in the McLean-Falls Church area was intentionally set and is under investigation.

The Fairfax fire department said in a statement that fire department units from both Fairfax and Arlington counties responded to the house fire Saturday at approximately 2:20 a.m. The single-family home is located at 2142 Haycock Road at the corner of Haycock and Westmoreland and across the street from Haycock Elementary School.

Firefighters reported light smoke coming from the top floor of the two-story home. Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire. There were no injuries.

Damage is estimated at $25,000. The house is for sale and the fire department has put up large signs that say "arson" on the for sale sign and on the house.

Neighbors report that the house in this location burned to the ground two years ago.

Stopped by recently to check out the house. Yes, the roof is gone. No, the siding is not vinyl and appears to be hardiplank. None of it looked melted. I did see that a huge section of a 2nd floor wall is just waiting to blow over onto the next door house on Haycock. Also, noted another gigantor house being built 3 doors down from the corner. Will this new house be the next vigilante's victim?
