To complicate the situation, there were several downed electrical wires and burning utility poles and crews needed to wait for BGE to shut off the power to safely complete the job,. Ultimately, the fires were extinguished with a special fire suppressing foam that suffocates the fire rather than douses it.

There is no damage estimate yet, nor has any cause of the fire been released.

Several photos of the fire were posted in the comments on Anne Arundel First Alert.

This story will be updated.
