On Thursday, January 14, 2021, at 11:44 p.m., Bay District Stations 3 & 9, Ridge, NDW Patuxent River, Hollywood, and Seventh District fire departments responded to 19446 Virginia Way in Lexington Park, for a working house fire.
Fire Chief 3 (Gould) arrived to find a two-story wood framed single family house with fire showing from the first and second floor.
Crews attacked the fire and had to be evacuated numerous times due to fire and building conditions. Once personnel were able to attempt and interior attack, the roof collapsed along with the second-floor caving in on top of firefighters on the first floor.
