The Maryland fire marshal and federal AFT agents are seeking the public’s help to determine the cause of a Monday night fire at a vacant house in Havre de Grace.
Firefighters from the Susquehanna Hose Company and other departments responded to 1715 Chapel Road shortly before 10 p.m. Monday and found the two-story dwelling on fire.
Though firefighters were able to contain the blaze within 20 minutes, according to the Office of the State Fire Marshal, it was significantly damaged. Ongoing assessments will need to be made to determine the total loss, the fire marshal’s office said.
One firefighter sustained a minor injury and was treated on the scene.
Deputy State Fire Marshals and agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives worked through the night and into the afternoon hours Tuesday investigating the origin and cause of the fire, according to a news release from the fire marshal’s office. Investigators were assisted by the Havre de Grace Police Department on the scene.
