Fire breaks out in Ellicott City home
The Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue Services responded to a two-alarm house fire in Ellicott City late Saturday evening and firefighters were still putting out the blaze early Sunday morning. Initial calls to the department about the fire in the 5000 block of Ellis Lane indicated people might be trapped inside the house, said spokeswoman Cerisa Speight, but investigators discovered that the residents were away on vacation. The house sitter escaped with no reported injuries, Spreight said.
