Updated (3:44 p.m.)—Firefighters worked Tuesday morning to battle a blaze at a single-family home in Arnold.
The two-alarm fire started just before 7 a.m. at the home at 1089 Deep Creek Ave., according to Anne Arundel County Fire Department spokesman Lt. Jack Beall. Initially, the fire was contained to the lower story of the home.
The fire was under control by about 8 a.m. after more than 50 firefighters responded to the scene from Anne Arundel County, Annapolis and Naval Academy fire departments.
Another fire department spokesman, Division Chief Keith Swindle, said two residents escaped the house and were unhurt. They are receiving assistance from the Red Cross.
The home suffered an estimated $100,000 in damages. The exact cause of the fire remains under investigation, Swindle said.
