Montgomery County firefighters say a fire displaced a family from their townhouse at 18925 Ebbtide Circle in Germantown on Monday afternoon.

Fire and Rescue Spokesperson Pete Piringer said, at one point, firefighters were engaged in a “firefight” as they worked to extinguish the blaze.

According to Piringer, the fire started outside near a trash bin under the deck. He described the deck as “unstable” because of the fire damage.

There were no injuries, Piringer said.

The cause has been ruled accidental. Damage is estimated at $70,000, Piringer said.
