Update, 10/14/2018, 4:07 p.m.: The Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department has confirmed that the structure that is on fire is in fact the Marco Polo restaurant.

The Marco Polo Restaurant, located at 245 Maple Ave. W in the heart of Vienna, is reportedly on fire, according to those near the scene.

The Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department has confirmed that “units are on the scene” at the 200 block of Maple Ave. W, but it has not yet corroborated the reports that it is in fact the Marco Polo Restaurant that is on fire.

The restaurant closed a few years ago and has been abandoned since.

As recently as 2017, developers had pitched an idea to build a townhouse complex and retail space at the Marco Polo site, but it failed to pass the Vienna Town Council after enough residents had signed a protest in response.
