HAGERSTOWN - A house fire on South Locust Street on Saturday night forced a family to look for another home, an American Red Cross official said.
At first, it looked as though two or possibly three families would be displaced, said Cindy Blackstock, the director of emergency services for the Washington County chapter of the Red Cross.
However, the Hagerstown Fire Department did a good job of minimizing the damage, so only one family was affected, she said.
The fire, at 224 S. Locust St., was reported shortly before 6 p.m., according to a Washington County emergency dispatcher.
About 30 minutes later, a Hagerstown Fire Department official said at the scene that people were home when the fire started, but they got out OK and no one was injured.
