A Saturday afternoon fire at 429 Summit Ave. caused no injuries, but residents of the two occupied apartments were displaced, Hagerstown Fire Chief Gary Hawbaker said.
Firefighters had trouble accessing part of the three-story apartment building where the fire had started, Hawbaker said.
"They couldn't get into that peak in the front of the building," Hawbaker said. The peak, or turret, of the brick building apparently had been closed off.
Capt. Justin Mayhue said only two of the building's three apartments were occupied at the time of the fire. The ground floor apartment was vacant.
"The family living on the second floor is staying with relatives," Mayhue said.
The Washington County Chapter of the American Red Cross was alerted to help relocate any families displaced by the fire who had nowhere else to go.
