Fire damages Fairplay home

FAIRPLAY - Five Fairplay residents safely evacuated their home Saturday morning after an electrical fire broke out in the attic, according to the state fire marshal's office.
It took 30 firefighters less than an hour to put out the fire, which caused an estimated $30,000 worth of damage to the two-story, 110-year-old brick house at 17829 Spielman Road, fire officials said.
Brandon Wagaman woke up his family around 3:30 a.m. after plaster from the second-floor ceiling began to fall in his face as a result of the fire, according to a release from the fire marshal's office.
