One person was found dead in a house in Fairfax County after a blaze broke out there late Monday, authorities said.

The fire occurred at a two-story, single-family home in the 3400 block of Elmwood Drive in the Alexandria section of Fairfax.

Four people who apparently had been in the house and one firefighter were all taken to a hospital, according to the county fire department. Their injuries were described as not life-threatening.

By 11 p.m., the fire was reported under control.

No further information was available immediately about the person who died. All other occupants got out of the house before firefighters arrived, the fire department said.

The cause of the fire was not reported.

The site is a residential area of single-level and two-story houses just south of the Capital Beltway, and about a half-mile west of Telegraph Road.
