Interesting video (above) showing two Frederick, Maryland police officers running into the end of row townhouse to make sure everyone was out during a fire around 9:00 a.m. today (Friday). But look at the home next door. With fire above him, it appears a civilian goes into that townhouse and comes out with what appears to be a laptop computer. These were the early moments of what became a three-alarm fire in the 500 block of Carrollton Drive that heavily damaged seven townhomes. According to police, some Frederick County workers were already helping to evacuate the homes when they arrived. Three firefighter suffered minor injuries.
Multiple crews were dispatched to the three-alarm fire at the complex just before 9 a.m. Friday, officials said. Frederick County Deputy Fire Chief Kevin Fox said that happened because of the building’s age and wooden structure and roof. State property records indicate the seven homes were built in 1966.
The building is a “total loss,” Fox said, adding that he was unsure how many residents were displaced. He said firefighters who first reached the scene quickly searched all seven homes, and no one was inside.
Michele Bowman, a spokeswoman for the Frederick Police Department, said when police officers first got to the scene, a Frederick County recycling crew was knocking on doors, trying to get people out. She said the Frederick Police Department was trying to identify the members of the recycling crew, but they were “grateful” for their actions.
