ABINGDON, Md. — Residents of 24 units at an Abingdon condominium building are displaced following a two-alarm fire Saturday night.

The fire broke out around 9:15 p.m. at a three story complex in the 3500 block of Thomas Point Court.

It took about 90 minutes for 60 firefighters to get the blaze under control.

One occupant was rescued from the building unharmed.

It's estimated the building sustained $2 million in damage.

Investigators believe the fire started on a third floor balcony, but are still looking into the cause.
