Police said the girl, who lives on Locust Street, was attempting to cross the street when she darted out in front of a van around 4:30 p.m.

Maugansville home damaged in morning fire

MAUGANSVILLE - A fire damaged a Maugansville home early Monday. There were no injuries.

Second Lt. Craig Sipes of the Maugansville Fire Company said the cause of the 2:07 a.m. fire at 18222 Shawley Drive is still under investigation. No dollar estimate of damage was available Monday.

Sipes said the blaze began around the two-story siding home's chimney, which was in operation at the time of the fire.


"When we first arrived, we found fire beside the chimney on the left side of the house," Sipes said.

Balloon construction within the home allowed the fire to spread between walls and floors, Sipes said. Firefighters were kept busy trying to prevent any more spreading.

"The house is livable ... we put up some plastic," Sipes said.

Firefighters from Long Meadow and the Washington County Air Unit were at the scene.

A Maryland state fire marshal is expected to visit the scene this morning and determine the exact cause and damage estimate.

The one occupant was out of the house before firefighters arrived, Sipes said. But none of the smoke detectors in the house was sounding at that time, Sipes said.
