Fire damaged a two-story home in Hagerstown Saturday morning, displacing a family of five.
The cause of the blaze at 1100 Fairview Road was under investigation Saturday, according to Hagerstown Fire Marshal Doug DeHaven.
The fire was reported at 8:42 a.m.
“There was heavy fire showing from the second-floor windows” when firefighters arrived, DeHaven said. “(The residents) discovered the fire in a second-floor bedroom. They were able to escape. I’m not aware of any injuries at this point.”
He said two adults and three teenagers lived in the home.
“The fire was pretty well contained to one room. There’s extensive smoke damage throughout (the structure). … The home will not be able to be occupied,” he said.
The Red Cross was assisting the family, he said.
DeHaven said the home was equipped with smoke detectors.
The last fire crew left the scene at 12:44 p.m., according to a Washington County emergency services supervisor.
