HELEN, Md. — An overnight fire has left one home with some serious damage.

At approximately 11:45 p.m. on November 13, first responders were called to the 38300 block of Chaptico Road in Helen for the reported house fire.

First arriving units from the Mechanicsville Volunteer Fire Department found a one-story single family home with smoke showing from the roof. Upon entering the building, crews found a small fire in the attic which was able to be controlled quickly. 

Nobody was injured as a result of the fire. The cause of the fire is still unclear at this time.

The assignment was scaled back soon after, and Truck 7 remained on the scene performing overhaul and ventilation. Truck 7 returned to quarters at around 1:30 a.m.
