STAFFORD COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) — Crews battled a two-alarm fire at an apartment complex in Stafford County on Thursday afternoon.

Stafford County fire and rescue units were called to the Stafford Oaks Townhomes on Maple Drive around 2:30 p.m.

That’s where firefighters found flames shooting from a middle unit in a row of townhouses. By that time, the fire had spread to two adjacent units.

Firefighters said the fire was marked under control just after 3:15.

The unit where the fire started was occupied by one adult who escaped through a second-floor window before first responders arrived. The occupant was treated and transported to an area hospital.

No one else was injured.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

The blaze damaged three homes. Three families were displaced.
