The pilot and two residents asleep inside the unit suffered minor injuries, Captain Willie Bailey of the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department said.
The building was evacuated, but there was no major structural damage.
Bailey said the Cessna 177B was heading to Manassas Regional Airport from Philadelphia and apparently ran out of fuel.
It has been a very busy couple of days in the 1st Battalion!
