A fire caused about $150,000 worth of damages to a Fallston home and its contents Friday afternoon, according to state fire marshal’s office. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
Firefighters were notified that a home on the 2700 block of Lawson Road was burning around 3:11 p.m. Friday, according to a new release from the Office of the State Fire Marshal. The fire caused $125,000 in damage to the structure and about $25,000 in damage to the one-story rancher’s contents.
Around 40 firefighters responded to the home, and it took them about 15 minutes to control the blaze, the office said. Nobody was injured or killed, but two dogs inhaled smoke and were taken to an emergency veterinarian by the home’s occupant.
The fire started in the rancher’s garage, the office reported, and was discovered by the home’s occupant. The home’s smoke alarm system activated after the fire was discovered.
