Alexandria resident Robert Rapanut photographed a drone he saw hovering over a six-alarm fire at a warehouse Monday afternoon.
It wasn't flying for long and it's unclear what it was doing, but at least one witness spotted a drone hovering over a six-alarm fire at a warehouse in Alexandria, just miles from the Pentagon.

Robert Rapanut of Alexandria said he was near the scene of the blaze that destroyed a warehouse in the 800 block of South Pickett Street when he saw an object rise. He took out a camera and photographed it.

"I just saw some black thing go up" Mr. Rapanut said. "It was up maybe two or three minutes. It hovered over the roof of the Red Lobster" a few hundred feet east of the fire.

Alexandria fire officials said the drone didn't belong to them.
