Wednesday March 8, 2017, Gamber & Community Fire Co. and neighboring fire department crews were alerted for a building fire with rescue in the 1700 block of Antler Lane in the neighborhood off of Deer Park Road. Utility 13 was coming back from class and was first on scene. It reported a fire in the front corner of the house and all occupants were out of the house.

Engine 134 arrived shortly after and pulled a line to the front door and entered to see if the fire had extended into the interior of the house. Engine 134's crew advised they didn't have any fire inside the first floor so the exterior fire was extinguished. The crews from Engine 92 (Reese) and Tower 12 (Sykesville) assisted with clearing the attic and basement. Minor overhaul and inspection of the front corner of the house was preformed to insure the fire was not inside the wall. All units cleared shortly after that.

The Office of the Maryland State Fire Marshal is investigating.
