TRAPPE — An early morning fire Saturday, Oct. 26, destroyed a two-story house on Chestnut Ridge Lane northeast of Trappe.
Trappe Volunteer Fire Company Chief Nick Newnam said the five occupants of the home “got out OK,” but the house was a “complete loss.”
The state fire marshal was investigating the cause of the fire, which started about 2:30 a.m.
Newnam estimated it took 75 firefighters about two hours to bring the blaze under control.
He wasn’t sure how many units responded, but he said they came from Talbot, Caroline and Dorchester counties.
The names of the home’s occupants have not been released.
The only structure left standing was the garage, and Newnam said it was damaged, as well. “They lost everything,” he said.
