Early video from Virginia blaze. Two-alarm fire runs the roof at Parkfairfax in Alexandria.

This is from a two-alarm fire on Thursday morning in Alexandria, Virginia. The fire was reported around 9:00 AM in the 3700 block of Lyons Lane in the Parkfairfax complex. I was aware of the fire and am clearly late in reporting this. Thanks to an alert reader for finding the video and waking me up. Part 1 of the video is above with Part 2 below. There are also three more clips:  Part 3, Part 4 and Part 5.

Here is what reported on Thursday:

Captain Luis Santano, spokesperson for the Alexandria Fire Department, says the blaze broke out in the attic of a two-story condominium building shortly after 9:00 Thursday morning.

Santano says firefighters mounted an aggressive attack on the flames in the attic and now have the blaze under control. 

According to Santano the damage was contained to four condo units inside the building, which are now uninhabitable.  Firefighters are in the process of assessing the damage.

Witnesses say they were alerted to the fire by a dog owned by one of the residents.

Santano says all occupants of the building, as well as firefighters, escaped injury.
