Video from Kevin O’Toole of a fire Saturday in Prince George’s County, Maryland with an initial report of someone trapped in the basement. The evacuation of the home is ordered at about 4:08 in the video.
Fire/EMS units responded to this fire at 4:45 pm and arrived at 9317 Kimbark Avenue, a 1-story with basement single family home, with fire showing. There were about 40 firefighter/medics working on the scene of this incident that required about 30 minutes to knock down. First arriving firefighters advanced hose lines into the home and were conducting a search of the basement for an unaccounted occupant. Fire conditions continued to intensify and the Incident Commander ordered all firefighters to evacuate. The unaccounted occupant was soon located at a neighbors home and was not injured. Firefighters regrouped and re-entered the home and extinguished the fire. Fire Investigators believe this fire may have started on the rear exterior of the home and extended to the interior. The exact cause of the fire remains under investigation. Fire Investigators determined an estimated fire loss at $75,000. The Citizen Services Unit assisted the displaced occupants.
