BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Howard County firefighters responded to a fire in Ellicott City late Friday night.
Just before midnight on Friday firefighters from the Howard County Fire Department were alerted for a tree on fire along Triadelphia Road just south of Frederick Road.
A second call came in reporting that it was a house on fire and that people were possibly trapped inside.
Firefighters found a single family home on fire and the roof began to collapse. Officials learned that no one was inside the home at the time of the fire.
The fire was under control within about 45 minutes. It took almost two hours to completely extinguish the fire and the home is considered a total loss.
There were no injuries to firefighters or civilians during this incident.
