STERLING, Va. (WUSA) -- Loudoun County Firefighters battled a blaze in a townhouse in the 20800 block of Trinity Square Wednesday just before 9 p.m.

Loudoun County Department of Fire and EMS Spokesperson Jan Mitchell says the fire went to two alarms shortly after crews arrived.

The fire spread to the townhouses on either side of the original fire building, displacing a total of 13 people. 

A resident of the townhouse where the fire started suffered burns and was taken to Medstar. The severity of her injuries is not known at this time.

The cause of the fire is being investigated, and there is no damage estimate available at this time. The Loudoun County chapter of the Red Cross is helping those forced from their homes.
