Initial reports indicated that some of the occupants might be trapped, but that was not the case when fire crews arrived on the scene. All had escaped safely prior to the fire department arrival.

The fire took about 25 minutes to control. At one point, the homeowner kept trying to re-enter the building and the fire department had to call the Anne Arundel County Police to prevent further entry until their work was complete.

In all, four people were displaced and are being assisted by the Red Cross. A cause or damage estimate was not immediately available.
