Fire destroys Rock Hall home; no injuries reported

ROCK HALL — A mobile home in the 21000-block of Haven Road and all its furnishings were destroyed by fire Tuesday night, Jan. 2.

Also destroyed was an 18-foot outboard-powered boat trailered on the property.

No injuries were reported.

The Office of the State Fire Marshal is continuing to investigate the cause of the fire.

Anyone with information is asked to call the fire marshal’s Upper Eastern Regional Office at 410-822-7609.

The fire originated inside the structure, according to investigators. 

A smoke alarm was present.

The Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation described the structure as a one-story “manufactured home,” built in 1987.

Andrea Toulson Edwards is the owner.

This is not Edwards’ primary residence.

She told The Evening Enterprise that no one was currently living there.

The house is located at the corner of Haven Road and Boyce Lane.

According to a news release from the OSFM, a neighbor discovered the fire at 9:40 p.m.

Rock Hall Volunteer Fire Company was the primary responder.

Firefighters brought the blaze under control in an hour, according to the fire marshal’s office.

The RHVFC posted on its website: “RHFP (Rock Hall Fire Police) and Engine 72 were the first units on the scene. Upon arrival first responders reported heavy smoke and fire coming from the structure. Crews conducted a defensive exterior attack to bring the fire under control.”

The intense heat caused the siding on the adjacent house to buckle.

About 50 firefighters were on the scene, according to the fire marshal’s office.

Haven Road and North Hawthorne Avenue were shut down for a period of time while apparatus was staged.
