At 0115 hours Box Alarm 4806 was struck for the reported vacant dwelling fire in the area of Hickory Hill Avenue and Brightlea Drive in Lanham, Maryland, sending Engine 484 and Ladder 28 as the first due engine and truck. Units arrived to find a 1 story home with fire showing from the first floor and roofline. Crews forced entry and were met at the door with heavy fire conditions. The engine and truck crew made quick work of the fire and the assignment was quickly scaled back. All searches provided negative. Companies from West Lanham returned after about 3 hours of work. Prince George’s County Fire Marshals are investigating.
