On May 17 at 2139 hours (9:39 pm), units were dispatched to the 1100 block of Village Gate Court for a house fire with 2 persons trapped. First arriving units from the MAVFD found two victims outside the house and a fire in a bedroom on the second floor. A quick attack and search were initiated immediately. No additional victims were found and the fire in the bedroom was knocked down rapidly. Emergency Medical personnel evaluated the victims and decided to transport one for a precautionary check up. The fire was contained to the bedroom with significant smoke and fire damage to the second floor of the house. Extensive overhaul was done to insure there was no hidden spread of the fire.

The origin and cause of the fire are under investigation by the Frederick County Fire Marshal's Office. Damage estimates are not yet available.

There were approximately 20 units and 65 personnel from Carroll, Frederick, Howard, and Montgomery counties including units from Mount Airy, New Market, Green Valley, Lisbon, Damascus, Urbana, West Friendship, Germantown, Winfield, Laytonsville, Frederick County DFRS, Howard County DFRS, Montgomery County DFRS, Frederick County Fire Marshal's Office, and the Mount Airy Police Department responded to the scene.

All units were clear of the scene at 2355 hours (11:55 pm).
