Prince George’s County firefighters were called to the fire Saturday on Cherry Hill Road in Beltsville. Fire officials say the blaze started after a lamp in one apartment tipped over and sparked a fire.

The two-alarm fire spread to six different apartment units. Some residents say they did not hear any fire alarms or smell smoke.

Firefighters were on the scene quickly, but they did not realize at first that the flames were spreading through the walls. Fire Chief Marc Bashoor says the flames came down on top of firefighters inside.
