Have you ever wondered what happens when you run over a fire hydrant? Colder climates have 'dry barrel' hydrants. The water stays below ground to prevent freezing and only enters the hydrant when the main valve is opened. Dry barrel hydrants have a breakable coupling at ground level to prevent damage to the system when struck as seen below. If you notice a broken hydrant, please contact Loudoun Water or the appropriate town Public Works and report it.

Fire at Sterling Gold’s Gym Ruled Accidental

Sterling, VA. - Quick actions on the part of Gold’s Gym employees helped avoid injuries after Tuesday afternoon’s explosion and resulting fire.
Just before 4:30pm Tuesday, March 21st, the Loudoun County Emergency Communication Center received multiple 9-1-1 calls advising of a possible structure fire at Gold’s Gym located at 46262 Cranston Street.
Fire and Rescue crews from Sterling Park, Cascades, Ashburn, Lansdowne, Leesburg and Kincora responded to the scene, along with multiple command officers. Upon arrival, firefighters encountered significant smoke conditions inside the structure and immediately requested additional fire and rescue resources.
Fire and rescue personnel ensured all neighboring occupancies were evacuated and upon entering, located a small fire in the rear of Gold’s Gym. While inside the gym, firefighters discovered significant structural damage to the walls and temporarily withdrew for fear of collapse. Once utilities could be secured and it was verified the structure was safe to re-enter, crews ensured there was no residual fire and worked to ventilate the structure. Due to the size of the building, a large mobile ventilation unit from the Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority was requested to clear remaining smoke from the structure.
The Loudoun County Fire Marshal’s Office conducted an investigation and determined the cause of the fire to be accidental. A significant electrical failure occurred involving a high voltage line at or near the same time a fuel air explosion occurred involving methane gas. The facility had been placed on “fire watch” earlier in the day due to problems with the electrical power supply to the fire alarm system. Gold’s Gym personnel were aware of the electrical issues and when they noticed dimming lights, they quickly evacuated everyone from the building. With all patrons and employees safely outside before the explosion occurred, staff prevented potential injuries or deaths.
Minimal burning occurred in the Gold’s Gym building as the fire was contained by the automatic sprinkler system. The adjacent Marshalls business received minor water damage and the electric and gas services to the entire complex were temporarily turned off. Damages are estimated at $500,000.00.

Pictured are Sterling Volunteer Fire Company firefighters sitting down and decompressing after an intensive training drill in March of 1986. During the drill a room exploded into a fireball causing what is called a backdraft. One man dove down the stairs and the other jumped out a second floor window to escape the fire.

UPDATE: We are looking into quotes to replace the pavers and the lighting as well, once we recieve those we will add them to the fundraising goal. Please note that any money raised will go directly from GoFundMe to the American Legion Post 150 to then distribute to the proper contractors.

American Legion Post 150 has let us know that once we have reached our fundraising goal and the money is disbursed they will take care of providing a receipt for any donations so that any donation made IS TAX DEDUCTIBLE!

I really appreciate everyone who has stepped up so far, and the American Legion Post 150 for working with me. As we get more information on the additional repairs, we will pass that along.

ORIGINAL POST: Please join me in my efforts to see our Veteran's Memorial restored!

Our Veterans have given the ultimate service, and many the ultimate sacrifice. Together let's show our Veterans that Sterling stands with them, and that we will honor that sacrifice, as we always have. Thank you for your consideration, and I hope that you will join me, and encourage others in our community to do the same!

Stumbled upon this Sterling Park classic earlier.

[12/09/16]   Company 11 units are backing into quarters after clearing a fire in Company 18's area. Engine 618 arrived to find smoke showing from a three story townhouse. Crews had a fire in the basement level. Engine 611 stretched to the basement while Truck 611 (running a reserve) completed searches and assisted with opening up.

[11/29/16]   Engine and Truck Company 11 are clearing a first due house fire. Crews arrived to find an attic fire in the 1000 block of South Greenthorn Avenue. Crews operated on scene for just over an hour.

[11/24/16]   Happy Thanksgiving from those of us in Sterling Park. Everyone be safe out there! #611inthepark

[11/23/16]   Tower 11 is currently operating on an apartment fire in Company 6's first due. #611inthepark
