A multi-alarm fire swept through a large home in the McLean area today. Fairfax Fire & Rescue crews sounded a second alarm as they battled flames in the large, single-family home in the 6600 block of Malta Lane. Arlington firefighters were also on the scene.

A Fairfax Fire official, Deputy Chief Knerr, said in a video report that all occupants of the home had been safely evacuated.

Additional tankers were summoned to bolster the water supply and report from the scene said the home had partially collapsed.
