The LCSO was honored to welcome a #Loudoun raised American hero to his new home in Middleburg.

Today, the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation named after a fallen 9/11 firefighter, handed over the keys to a brand-new, mortgage-free smart home to USMC Sgt. Rob Jones.

Sgt. Jones served his country in Iraq and Afghanistan and lost both of his legs when he stepped on a landmine.

His injury has not stopped the Purple Heart recipient from supporting his fellow veterans and inspiring people around the world with his incredible feats of strength and endurance.

In 2014, he undertook a 181-day, 5,180-mile bike ride from Maine to California, raising money for wounded veterans along the way.

In 2017 he then embarked on a new physical challenge, running 31 marathons over 31 consecutive days, once again raising money for veterans’ charities. He completed this goal and received national news coverage on Veterans Day.

Last year, he participated in the annual Tunnel to Towers Tower Climb NYC, scaling 104 stories and 2226 steps to the top of One World Observatory.

Sgt. Jones grew up in Lovettsville and went to Loudoun Valley High School.

Now, he will be starting the next chapter of his life with a brand-new, mortgage-free smart home in Middleburg, VA.

Sgt. Jones and his wife Pamela plan on turning the property into a fruit and vegetable farm.

The Tunnel to Towers Foundation built Sgt. Jones’s smart home to meet his specific needs and allow him to live as independently as possible. Cooking food grown on the farm will be easier because the kitchen features pull-down cabinet shelving and a stove that adjusts to wheelchair height, allowing Sgt Jones to reach everything safely, whether he is on his prosthetics or in a wheelchair. The home also features automated lights and both a thermostat and security system that can be controlled via smartphone or tablet.

Well done Casey's Automotive and Ellie's Hats

This is just awesome. Thank you to everyone that helped us raise money for Ellie's Hats! From our generous vendors to my staff, and everyone who brought their cars and trucks out, thank you! We could not have done it without your support. Of course, Jay is the real hero here. Donating his time to a cause worth fighting for, helping to put smiles where smiles may be hard to come by. Often times the owner takes credit for success, but I wanted to take this picture because these 3 deserve ALL the credit. Running this show is stressful, to say the least. Mary Jewett and Lauren Bien. You guys rock. Tirelessly working to make sure this spring fest went well and it did. Anything successful on that day was because of you two. Next year our goal is to raise twice a much!!

Windy City Red Hots

When we started Windy City Red Hots, our goal was simple: share the great taste of Chicago to everyone that hasn’t had it and for those that grew up with it and miss it so, it’s a bit of nostalgia as you bite into any of the foods. A little over 10 years and we’re overjoyed of what has happened. From the Food Truck and two Downtown Locations (Leesburg and Frederick), all the awards, great articles and most importantly getting to know our regulars and loyal customers.

We are extremely grateful for all our customers, past and present employees as well our family and friends who has helped our teenage dreams come to fruition. We couldn’t have done any of this with out you.

It’s hard to say bye as we’ve lived and breathed Windy City Red Hots for a decade now.. but after careful consideration, we’ve made a decision to close Windy City Red Hots. Our last day in Frederick will be on Saturday the 20th and our final day in Leesburg is on Sunday the 28th.

Thank you so much for all the love and support everyone has given us. It has been a great ride. It sounds cheesy, but it’s true what they say “when a door closes, another one opens…”

There’s a couple more weeks to get your fix, stock up using bulk carry out, etc. If you plan on stocking up, please let us know so we can make sure you’ll be set for a while! We hope to see you before our last day.

Mulch Fires

Springtime is usually accompanied by a significant increase in the number of fires that occur in landscaping mulch. These fires are particularly dangerous due to their proximity to homes and structures. The fire starts in the landscaping mulch, spreads into the shrubbery and then to the home or building. Most are started by people, often via improper disposal of smoking materials, so most can be prevented. However, mulch can spontaneously combust under the proper conditions. If you see anything smoking in a landscaped bed put it out if you can and call 911. If the burning material is not thoroughly wet or removed, it may re-ignite.

House Fire for Sunday Crew

Just before 9pm on Sunday night Engines 624, 618, Engine and Truck 611, Engine and Rescue 439 and Battalion Chief 401 from Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department, Truck 606 from Ashburn Volunteer Fire Rescue Department - AVFRD, Battalion Chief 601, Safety Officer 601, EMS Supervisor 601 from Loudoun County Fire and Rescue, and Ambulance 615 from Sterling Volunteer Rescue Squad were alerted for a house fire in Countryside. (As units were responding an unrelated house fire was dispatched in Ashburn.) Engine 618 arrived first to find a garage on fire and began to extinguish it from the outside. Engine 624 arrived next and went inside to make sure that no fire was spreading there, assisted by Truck 606. Rescue 439 searched the entire house to ensure that everybody was out safely. The fire was extinguished quickly and the focus became ensuring that the fire hadn't spread elsewhere and mitigating damage to property from smoke and water. The scene was turned over to the Fire Marshal for investigation. Canteen 611 responded to provide refreshment to the crews as they worked.

On Monday night the Loudoun County Combined Fire Rescue System held a graduation ceremony for those members who completed training classes in the last 6 months. Joining a total of 80 people were 21 members of the SVFC. 15 members completed Firefighter I-II (and received a number of other certifications along the way), 3 members completed Emergency Medical Responder, and another 3 completed Emergency Medical Technician (Basic). The instructors for each class recognized a "Top Student" and for Firefighter I-II that honor went to James Biddle of the SVFC. Congratulations to all, and we look forward to working alongside you as we serve Loudoun County. If you'd like to follow in their footsteps come find out more at our next Volunteer Information Session on April 4th (see our Facebook event for details).
