BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Firefighters were on the scene of a three-alarm apartment fire in the 1200 block of Raven Wood Court in Harford County early Thursday morning.

Officials have since determined that discarded ashes from a fireplace on a third floor balcony was the cause of the blaze, which started around 2:40 a.m.

Firefighters rescued two people from the building and got the fire under control in just over an hour.

Fifteen people were displaced, but no injuries were reported.
