Fire investigators are looking for the cause of a small fire in a Rockville house that injured one person and displaced five early Sunday morning, a Montgomery County Fire & Rescue Service spokesman said Monday.
The fire occurred before 5 a.m. Sunday morning at a house in the 300 block of Bradley Avenue, near Twinbrook. MCFRS spokesman Pete Piringer said the relatively small fire was limited to a second-floor bedroom. The occupants of the house were alerted by a smoke alarm and got outside. One person suffered injuries that were not life-threatening, he said.
Piringer said that fire investigators had spoken to one individual they identified as a “person of interest” and had not yet determined the cause of the fire. He said he did not have further information on why the person was being interviewed or what investigators know about the fire.
The fire resulted in about $20,000 in damage.
