House Fire on Cabana Drive Displaces Family of Three

November 5, 2017

A family of three has been displaced after a fire ripped through their home on Cabana Drive on Friday evening.

   Shortly after 7:00 pm on Saturday, Nov. 4, Montgomery County Fire Rescue Service units were dispatched to the two-story, single-family home at 20409 Cabana Drive. When units arrived, they encountered heavy fire showing from the rear second floor and attic areas, according to Pete Piringer, senior spokesperson for the MCFRS. “The fire had extended to the entire rear of the house on the second floor and into the attic area of the house,” he said. “Firefighters were able to knock down the bulk of the fire which extended into the attic. The fire was extinguished with the assistance of a Rapid Intervention Task Force which brought about 65 firefighters to the scene.”

   All occupants of the house were evacuated and no injuries. The Red Cross is working with the family of three, one adult and two children, to find temporary homes as they have displaced by the fire.  “The occupant of the house was asleep in the living room at the time of the fire, and was awoken by the noise of the fire and saw the flames on the outside of the house.

   Fire officials believe the fire began in an exterior flood light and appears to be accidental, according to Piringer. Damage to the house is estimated to be about $400,000.
