A Fairfax woman was killed Monday in an apartment fire that county police and fire officials said was intentionally set.
Police spokeswoman Officer Shelley Broderick said the woman, who has not yet been identified, was found by firefighters in her Reston apartment in the 12000 block of Waterside View Drive.
“Any time there’s a fatality from a fire we always have the Office of the Fire Marshal and the police department on the death investigation,” Officer Broderick said. “Based on what they have so far, they do believe it’s a homicide.”
Officer Broderick said the fire started at about 6:12 a.m. Monday, and firefighters were called to the apartment complex for reports of smoke coming from one of the second floor apartments.
