Fire Destroys Sabillasville Area Home

The cause under investigation.


Sabillsivlle, Md (KM) The cause of a house fire  in the Sabillasville area early Monday morning remains under investigation.

Fire fighters were dispatched to the 6300 block of Debold Road at around 12:53 AM, and found a two-story home fully involved in flames, according to fire officials.. A tanker task force was established due to a lack of water in the area.

40 fire fighters from Frederick, Washington, Adams and Franklin Counties spent more than three hours putting out the flames.  Fire officials say the strong winds and impending storms made fire fighting difficult.

The two occupants of the home escaped. One was taken to a hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. There were no fire fighter injuries. The Red Cross is helping the residents of the home.

The County Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause of the fire. The value of the loss has not yet been determined. .
