Aberdeen and Susquehanna Hose Company volunteer firefighters… (Nicole Munchel | Record…)
Residents of eight apartments in Aberdeen were displaced Tuesday afternoon following a fire in their building. The fire, reported around 3 p.m. in a building in the 300 block of South Parke Street, was determined to be accidental, started by contractors who were working in the building, Rich Gardiner, a spokesman for the Harford County Volunteer Fire and EMS Association, said Tuesday evening.
The residents displaced are being helped by Red Cross Disaster Assistance, he said.
Gardiner said it took about 65 firefighters from Aberdeen Fire Department, Aberdeen Proving Ground Fire Department, Susquehanna Hose Company and Level Volunteer Fire Company about 20 minutes to control the fire, which affected the eight units in the building.
No one was injured, he said.
He did not know the extent of the damage Tuesday, nor did he have a cost estimate.
The cause is under investigation.
