A two-story semi-detached home on the 4200 block of Slater Avenue in Perry Hall caught fire Friday afternoon.
Firefighters responded before 1:15 p.m. and flames were brought under control by 1:30 p.m. The fire caused significant damages to the attic and first floor of the home, while causing minimal damage to an attached home, according to Baltimore County Fire Chief Paul Lurz.
One adult was displaced by the fire, but no one was injured, Lurz said.
"It's scary, that could have been our home," said Kelly Grant, who lives across the scene of the fire.
