Family Displaced by Fire in Germantown (PHOTOS)



Montgomery County firefighters say a charcoal grill is responsible for sparking a fire at a Germantown house early this morning that has displaced a family of six.

Over 70 firefighters battled the blaze at 13405 Tilford Court in Germantown Estates.

Fire and Rescue Spokesperson Pete Piringer said a working smoke alarm alerted the family to the fire, and they were able to evacuate their home with no injuries.

According to Piringer, the fire was caused by a charcoal grill on the deck.

He said damages are estimated at $150,000.
