White Drive fire causes over $600,000 in damage in Silver Spring (Photos)

A house fire in the 12500 block of White Drive in the North Springbrook subdivision of Silver Spring caused over $600,000 in damage early Wednesday morning. Initially concerned that - despite cars in the driveway - the family residing there was unaccounted for, it was eventually determined that they were on vacation, Montgomery County Fire and Rescue spokesperson Pete Piringer said.

Although the cause of the fire has not yet been determined, an initial investigation concluded the fire began on the first floor of the home. No injuries were reported, Piringer said, but one firefighter was evaluated for possible heat exhaustion at the scene. Heavy fire led to a roof collapse at the home.
