Firefighters Battle House Fire in Germantown

UPDATED A house fire in Germantown on Wednesday evening caused an estimated $400,000 in damages and displaced a family of four, according to a Montgomery County fire official.

Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Services Spokesperson Pete Piringer said the fire at 17809 Falconcrest Circle began outside, near the deck. He said that 60 firefighters were called to the scene.

At one point, Piringer said firefighters were engaged in a “firefight” as they battled the blaze on all three levels of the single-family house.

Piringer said two firefighters were evaluated for non-life-threatening injuries. There were no injuries to any residents, he said.

The cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
