Firefighters hurt as ladder hits wire

Three Fairfax County firefighters were injured Wednesday morning, and power was lost to 31,000 Northern Virginia homes and businesses, when a ladder on a fire engine struck two power lines in the Lorton area of southern Fairfax. The firefighters were doing a weekly test of the ladder on the truck at the Crosspointe station, just off Route 123 on Hampton Road, about 8:40 a.m., Fairfax fire spokesman Dan Schmidt said. As the firefighters were extending the ladder near the station, it struck two lines and shot a bolt of high voltage electricity through the truck, along the concrete driveway and into the station, sparking a short fire at the electrical box, Schmidt said.

Va. attacks may be linked to serial killer

Police in Leesburg are investigating a possible link between three recent unprovoked attacks in the city and a serial killer in Michigan. The assailant is white, and in nearly all the cases the victims are black, prompting concerns the attacks may be racially motivated. Leesburg Police said a vehicle in which the attacker fled after one of the Virginia attacks — a dark green Chevrolet Blazer or GMC Jimmy that has two large grapefruit size dents in the hood — matches the description of a vehicle Michigan police believe the attacker may have used there.
