- Firefighters in Fairfax County are responding to a three-alarm fire at Tysons Corner Center, according to fire officials.

Photos posted on social media showed smoke coming from the area of the mall at around 6 p.m. Friday. The fire happened at the Seasons 52 restaurant, which led to some evacuations.

Tysons Corner Center spokesperson Bob Maurer said in a statement:

"There was a kitchen fire in one of our restaurants that has been contained by the Fairfax County fire department.
