The following information is from the Reese & Community Volunteer Fire Company post on Facebook:

U9-1 arrived on scene first and advised that there was a working house fire and all occupants were out. C9-1 then arrived on scene with ET94 and assumed command. Westminster E31 arrived shortly after and assisted ET94 with fire attack.

Surrounding companies that responded included Gamber & Community Fire Company,  Hampstead Volunteer Fire Company,  Reisterstown Volunteer Fire Company,  Pleasant Valley Volunteer Fire Company,  Lineboro Volunteer Fire Department, and Union Bridge Volunteer Fire Company

The fire was placed under control within an hour of the arrival of the units.

All occupants of the home were accounted for and unharmed. Tragically (2) of the homeowners cats passed away. The homeowners were awakened from sleep due to working smoke detectors in the home.

Thank you to Glyndon Volunteer Fire Department for filling us in while we were operating at the scene.
