Montgomery County Fire & Rescue units were alerted to the house fire on Tuesday afternoon (6/2/15) on Coltfield Ct. in Gaithersburg. Firefighters arrived on scene to find heavy fire and smoke showing from an end of the row townhouse. The fire extended through two additional town house units in the row, with heavy fire load in the ceilings and walls, causing significant structural damage. The rapid intervention and a working fire task force were dispatched quickly, and a 2nd alarm was sounded to bring more manpower and relief crews.
Units from the 3rd and 5th Battalions operated for a few hours to get the fire completely knocked and to perform overhaul.
