ARNOLD, Md. (WMAR) — One home is destroyed and two others were damaged following a two alarm fire on Tuesday night in Arnold.

Anne Arundel County Fire officials say they received calls just after 7 p.m. for a fire in the 500 block of Martingale Lane.

Crews found an end unit on fire, which later caused smoke and water damage to two connected residences in the block.

According to Anne Arundel County Fire Lieutenant Erik Kornmeyer, the end unit is a total loss.

Kornmeyer said the owners were not home and out of the area at the time of the fire.

It took about 45 minutes for members of the Anne Arundel County, Annapolis, and Naval Academy Fire Departments to control the blaze.

An investigation is underway to determine the cause of the fire.
