North Laurel house fire displaces family

A North Laurel house caught fire Thursday night, likely displacing a Howard County family from their home, fire department officials said.

Howard County Department of Fire & Rescue Services firefighters and paramedics responded to the home in the 10700 block of Graeloch Rd. just after 9 p.m. About 40 firefighters and paramedics kept the blaze from spreading through the whole house and put out the fire in roughly 20 minutes, officials said.

No one was injured, but the home was expected to be declared uninhabitable Thursday night, officials said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, officials said.
