A two-alarm fire Friday at a mobile home park in southern Anne Arundel County has destroyed two homes and displaced seven residents, including a woman who was hospitalized for smoke inhalation.

Fire crews, called at 3:45 a.m. to the Lion's Creek Mobile Home Park on Bravo Street in Lothian, found two units heavily involved in fire. It took 60 firefighters about an hour to bring the fire under control. Investigators are working to determine the cause, but have said the fire spread quickly from one home to an adjoining residence. No other units in the park, which is near Solomons Island Road, were damaged, fire officials said.

The 80-year-old victim is being treated at Calvert Memorial Hospital. No other residents or firefighters were injured. The Red Cross is assisting the displaced residents, including an infant.
