At approximately 9:32 AM, MCFRS personnel from Cabin John, Clarksburg, Gaithersburg, Germantown, Laytonsville, and Rockville along with NIST (Federal Fire Station), were dispatched for a reported house fire in the 15000 block of Plainfield Lane in Darnestown.
First arriving units reported smoke evident from a second floor window. Two adult occupants of the home had already safely evacuated prior to fire-rescue arrival. A smoke alarm in the home did activate and alerted the homeowners of the fire. Fire Fighters quickly extinguished a fire that was in a bedroom in the front of the home (see photos).
Cause is currently under investigation and damage total is pending.
