Fire destroys house on Forest Beach Road

April 13, 1997|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A fast-moving fire destroyed a $40,000 wood-frame house at 338 Forest Beach Road late Friday. No one was injured.

A furnace in a crawl space under the floor ignited the flooring and, because no one arrived home until about 11: 50 p.m., the fire spread undetected until it engulfed the single-story house, said Battalion Chief Gary Sheckells, the Anne Arundel County EMS Fire-Rescue spokesman.
