FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A fire that broke out inside a single-family rental home in Frederick sent smoke blowing across the grounds of the Great Frederick Fair.

Firefighters at the fair responded to the Sunday night blaze on Monroe Avenue and 4-H members at the fair also helped out.

Lt. Jeremy Wade of the Frederick County Division of Fire and Rescue Services tells The Frederick News-Post that the fire was quickly put out.

He says no one was home at the time, though a family will likely be displaced.

Damage costs weren’t immediately available.
