Two-Alarm Fire Displaces Fifteen
Residents and Sends One to the Hospital

Rockville - - - A two-alarm fire this morning has displaced fifteen residents from the Foxhall Apartments at 8708 Barron Street in Silver Spring. When firefighters responded just before 7:00 a.m., they found flames on the top floor of the apartment complex and extending through the roof. Over 55 firefighters responded on the initial alarm and brought the fire under control within 15 minutes. Several residents were evaluated on the scene and one resident was transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries for further evaluation. The American Red Cross is assisting the displaced residents.

Three apartments were damaged in the fire and have been declared uninhabitable and unsafe to occupy by officials. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. Damage was estimated at $35,000. Montgomery County fire officials remind ALL residents to ensure that smoke alarms are present . . . and working.
