Bethesda House Fire
back to full incidents list

Just after 1330 hours on September 26th, RS741B and M741 were dispatched to the 5800 block of Kingswood Road in North Bethesda for the house fire. Arriving units found fire showing from the 2nd floor of a single family dwelling. Due to lightweight construction, the fire spread quickly into the attic and through the roof. An interior attack was made and the fire was knocked within 30 minutes of arrival. The squad crew searched the entire structure with negative results and controlled utilities. The crew then assisted with extinguishment and overhaul before clearing.
