A family of three has been displaced after a Sunday afternoon house fire in the 8100 block of Bellingham Ct. in Fairfax Station. It took Fairfax County firefighters over an hour to bring the fire under control and one firefighter was taken to the hospital for observation. 

"First arriving units found fire coming through the roof," said Fairfax County Fire and Rescue spokesperson Renee Stilwell. "This fire was huge. The roof is gone and the second floor fell in." 

No one was home when the fire was reported at around 12:30 p.m. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
