A six-alarm fire on Labor Day 2013 brought firefighters throughout Northern Virginia and Prince George’s County, Maryland to the 800 block of South Pickett Street in Alexandria. It also forced STATter911.com off his fat butt to drive the 15 minutes to capture the video above. The fire was impacted by a water main break a block away earlier in the day. Toward the end of the video you will see the large amount of hose on the ground on the west side of the fire as part of the relay to bring in water from other mains.
The warehouse fire was reported at about noon on Monday and firefighters contained it by about 4 p.m.
South Van Dorn Street at Edsall Road was closed as firefighters extinguish the blaze.
Chief Fire Marshal Robert Rodriguez with the Alexandria Fire Department says no injuries have been reported.
The fire is about a block away from a water main break at the intersection of South Pickett and South Van Dorn streets. Rodriguez says the water main break is giving firefighters some trouble, but they are working around it.
