Friday, March 9, 2018, Westminster (Winfield), MD - Just after midnight firefighters were dispatched to the 2200blk of Dulany Terrace for a garage on fire which was reported to be attached to a house. Fire dispatchers advised responding units via radio that a Sheriff’s deputy was on location reporting heavy fire from the garage. Firefighters arrived and updated that the fire had extended into the home. A Public Information Officer (PIO) was not immediately available at the time of the incident. Assistant Chief Jeff Lowman of the Mount Airy Volunteer Fire Company was the incident commander. Chief Lowman said there were no injuries reported and the fire will be under investigation by the Office of the Maryland State Fire Marshall. He could not speculate on a cause but said it took approximately 70 firefighters to bring the blaze under control.
