A two-alarm fire burned through a home in Edgewater on Monday night, with high winds from the massive storm Sandy making the response by firefighters more difficult, according to an Anne Arundel Fire Department spokesman.

A single occupant in the two-story single-family home managed to escape, said Chief Michael Cox, the spokesman.

Units arrived at the home in the 1100 block of Hull Drive in the Turkey Point community about 10:30 p.m. to find flames visible on the second floor and through the roof, Cox said.

It took 64 firefighters about an hour to contain the flames, he said.

There were no injuries reported. The fire remains under investigation, he said.
