2 firefighters hurt battling blaze
Two D.C. firefighters were injured in a row house fire in Northwest early yesterday morning.
The fire in the vacant home in the 400 block of Newton Place Northwest was reported shortly after 3:15 a.m.
Fire department spokesman Alan Etter said the two firefighters have first- and second-degree burns. Their injuries are serious but do not appear life threatening. No one else was injured.
A family next door got out of their home after their smoke alarm sounded.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
County joins others against illegal aliens
Spotsylvania County will join the growing number of Virginia localities trying to crack down on illegal aliens.
County Board of Supervisors Chairman Chris Yakabouski plans to have staff next week look at how to deny services to illegal aliens in Spotsylvania County.
Culpeper County supervisors voted this week to affirm English as the county’s official language, and Chesterfield County officials plan in the coming weeks to issue a report on which services can be denied to illegal aliens.
Spotsylvania officials are considering tightening housing measures because of some residents’ complaints about overcrowding in homes and too many cars parked on lawns and narrow streets.
Last month, Prince William County supervisors ordered police to check the status of people they think are in the country illegally. County officials also directed staff to find ways to deny public services to illegal aliens.
