UPDATE (Nov. 27, 12:55 a.m.)—Firefighters responded to a blaze on the 9400 block of Bellhall Drive in Perry Hall Saturday night, said Lt. John Milby, a Baltimore County fire spokesman.
No injuries were reported and no one was taken to the hospital, Milby said.
The fire began on the first floor of a single-family home in the Seven Courts neighborhood shortly after 10 p.m. Its cause remains under investigation, he said.
Several career and volunteer fire companies responded. It was contained as of 11:45 p.m., Milby said.
By 12:30 a.m. Sunday, firefighters had moved burnt furniture to the front lawn of the home and windows were covered in plastic.
"I was a mess and a wreck ... I just saw flames," said Diane Insley, who lives across from the fire.
Insley confirmed that the residents of the home, her neighbors of 25 years, escaped without injury.
"It's not good. I guess it could happen to anybody," said Ed Kolb, a nearby resident. "But until you see it, you don't realize how bad it is."
