2-Alarm Fire Destroys Townhouse


Nine people displaced

Frederick, Md. (DG) – A massive fire severely damaged three townhouses early Thursday morning in Frederick.

Firefighters were dispatched to the 200 block of Canfield Terrace in Frederick at around 12:20 AM for a two alarm fire. The initial calls were for a backyard fence and deck on fire.

When firefighters arrived, they found heavy fire showing through the roof of a townhouse. It took 60 firefighters about 30 minutes to put the flames out.

The townhouse that caught fire was a middle unit, and fire damaged the townhouses on both sides.

There were no injuries. Nine people were displaced and they’re being helped by the Red Cross.

The Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause of the fire.
