Fire in Colesville area displaces two

A townhouse fire late Tuesday night in the Colesville area of Silver Spring has displaced two, and caused over $100,000 in damage to the home and contents. Smoke alarms alerted the residents to a fire caused by an arcing electric socket by a bed around 11:30 PM in the 1100 block of Good Hope Road.

Firefighters were quickly able to locate and extinguish the fire, which had started in a second floor bedroom of the home. No one was injured, according to Montgomery County Fire and Rescue spokesperson Pete Piringer.
