A fire burned through a home in the Mount Washington neighborhood of North Baltimore late Monday night, forcing residents to flee as firefighters responded, according to the Baltimore Fire Department.

Firefighters were dispatched to the home in the 2200 block of South Road about 10:30 p.m. and found "heavy flames from all sides of the house," said Ian Brennan, a department spokesman.

Firefighters quickly began bringing the fire under control, Brennan said.

Residents in the home had managed to escape, and no injuries were reported, Brennan said.

The fire is under investigation.
