Firefighters Offer Safety Tips to Neighbors After House Fire Displaces Family

A family of six has been displaced after a large house fire in the Tilden Woods neighborhood broke out Wednesday afternoon. Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service (MCFRS) officials say it happened around 4:00 p.m. on the 11600 block of Danville Drive near Luxmanor Elementary School and Tilden Middle School.

The occupants got out of the house safely with no injuries, but officials say the blaze caused “significant damage.” As part of the MCFRS “After the Fire” initiative, crews returned to the neighborhood to spread safety information – due to the extent of the blaze.

MyMCM spoke with MCFRS Chief Spokesperson Pete Piringer to get more information about what possibly caused the fire and how the safety initiative works.
