BCoFD crews were dispatched at about 5 p.m. April 20 -- Easter Sunday -- to an end-of-group townhouse fire at 610 Dunloy Court in the Mays Chapel area. First-arriving crews immediately called for a second alarm.

The fire at 610 Dunloy spread to the adjacent home, 608 Dunloy. Both of these units suffered heavy fire damage, and four adults and one child were displaced. One adult was temporarily displaced from 606 Dunloy, which suffered much less severe damage.

One firefighter was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.

BCoFD determined that the fire began as the result of a backyard grill fire that spread to the townhome.

At 9:52 p.m. Thursday, BCoFD and BCoPD were dispatched to a townhome in the 5800 block of Ivy League Drive at 9:51 p.m. for a report of a dwelling fire.

When personnel arrived, they found the front porch of the home on fire. A second alarm was called by BCoFD commanders just after 10 p.m.. as the fire began spreading to adjacent units.

Two families were displaced by the fire. No civilian injuries reported. One volunteer firefighter was transported to St. Agnes Hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation.

About 22 pieces of fire equipment were dispatched to the scene.

An investigation into the cause of the fire is continuing.
