WHO: Alexandria Fire Department

WHAT: At 11:16am firefighters from the Alexandria Fire Department, assisted by Arlington and Fairfax County Fire Departments responded to the 500 block of N. Armistead Street for a report of smoke in a garden apartment building. Arriving units reported light smoke coming from a three story apartment building and immediately requested a second alarm. Firefighters entered an apartment on the second floor and extinguished a fire in the kitchen area. Responding second alarm units were returned prior to their arrival.
