Wayne Manchester Towers fire in Silver Spring displaces 4 families (Photos)
Piringer noted that working smoke alarms in the building were a major reason all occupants escaped injury. But some needed to be rescued by firefighters, trapped by flames and smoke. An explosion reportedly blew out a window at the 8-story building at 25 E. Wayne Avenue.
The blaze, smoke and water damage caused over $125,000 in damage, according to Piringer. Its cause remains under investigation as of this writing.
