UPDATE:  From the AACoFD:

Fire destroyed one home and damaged two others in an early morning fire near Annapolis. The Anne Arundel County 9-1-1 Center received multiple calls reporting a dwelling fire in the Oyster Harbor Community around 1:25 a.m. The first arriving unit arrived in the 1300 block of Harbor Road to find the house 100% involved with fire.  Houses on either side of the original fire were also on fire due to the excessive heat and flames.

A second alarm was called, bringing a total of 91 firefighters from Anne Arundel County, Annapolis, and Naval District Washington – Naval Academy Fire Departments assisted in the efforts to extinguish the fire. Due to the lack of public water in the area, tankers and a fire boat were used to establish a continuous flow of water to extinguish the fire.

The occupants of the house were able to get out before our arrival.  Red Cross has been contacted to assist the two adult occupants with temporary housing. One firefighter has been transported to be evaluated for minor injuries.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, and no estimated dollar loss has been established.
