Fire Severely Damages Severn Home

It took 75 firefighters nearly 90 minutes to get the blaze under control on Wild Willow Way.

A house in Severn sustained hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage from a fire early Monday morning. 

Firefighters responded at 12:55 a.m. to a report of a fire at 315 Wild Willow Way, according to Capt. James Rostek of the Anne Arundel County Fire Department. 

It took about 75 firefighters 90 minutes to get the blaze under control.

Rostek said there were two adults and one child in the home at the time, and they were awakened by smoke alarms and immediately called the fire department. The family escaped without injury.

Rostek said there was an estimated $350,000 in damage to the home and its contents. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Property records show the house was built in 2007.

You know it's not bright to post the actual address of the home...since this has happened our street has been clogged with nosy lookie-loos and it also opens up opportunity for vandalism, illegal activity, etc. in the gutted home..real bright and thank you for essentially giving the green flag with this.

So if they'd only given the street name that'd have been ok? No one would have driven down the street to looky-loo? It's not a big street. It's NEWS! Have you never read news before to see that the 5 W's are always included?
