At approximately 9:10 AM on Thursday, May 30, 2019, firefighters and paramedics from the Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue Services (HCDFRS), along with mutual aid resources from the Sykesville Freedom District Volunteer Fire Department in Carroll County and the Baltimore County Fire Department, were dispatched to a reported house fire in the 11000 block of Willow Green Way in Marriottsville. Crews arrived on location within minutes and reported fire in the basement. The fire was quickly knocked down.
Occupants safely evacuated the home prior to HCDFRS arrival. Five residents have been displaced as a result of the fire but did not request Red Cross assistance at this time. One pet dog was safely out of the home as well. No reported civilian or firefighter injuries.
Fire investigators from the HCDFRS Office of the Fire Marshal and are working to determine the origin and cause of the blaze. Damage estimates are pending.
Glad to hear the occupants and dog all got out safely and that no firefighters were injured today.
