Cold Saturday House Fire

A working smoke detector alerted residents to fire saving lives & property Thursday Night. Gamber & Community Fire Company with neighboring fire companies responded to a house fire around 8 pm Thursday, January 28th. The Carroll County Emergency Communications Center received a 911 call from the homeowner stating there was smoke on the second floor of their home and the smoke detector was activated.

Upon arrival, Captain 13 had nothing evident from the outside of the home but found moderate smoke on the second story of the home. Engine 134 investigated the conditions and found a small fire had developed in a confined space in the home. The engine crew was able to contain the fire and prevent further damage to the home.

Approximately 50 firefighters responded to the scene and the fire was declared under control approximately 20 minutes later. The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office.

This is a great example of working smoking detectors saving lives when working properly. Always be sure to check your smoke detector every 3 months. It is recommended a smoke detector be installed on every floor of your home and outside every bedroom.
