Fire Crews arrived on location of a single story single family home with a basement with heavy fire showing from the 1st floor and basement windows. Initial arriving crews attacked the fire externally before making entry into the structure for an interior attack.
However, due to the compromised safety and stability of the dwelling, fire crews were ordered out of the structure and continued their attack on the fire from the exterior.

The fire was brought under control in under 20 minutes.  It took a total of 40 Firefighters with assistance from Anne Arundel County, and Naval District Washington Fire Departments to extinguished the blaze.

According to the homeowner the home was vacant and there were no reported injuries to civilians or fire department personnel.

There is no estimate of damage to the home and the cause and origin of the fire is under investigation.
