Montgomery County Fire/Rescue units responded to the 11900 block of Old Columbia Pike for the house fire with a report of people trapped. Battalion Chief 701 arrived on scene and confirmed a working house fire with a person hanging from a second floor window. A male occupant jumped from the window prior to the fire departments arrival. A female occupant remained on the window sill and was rescued via ladder by the fire department (see photos below).

The fire was brought under control in about 15 minutes and was contained to the first floor of the townhouse. Damages were roughly $125,000 to the structure and $75,000 to the contents. There were 5 persons total displaced (two adults and three children). The two adults were transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.
