A fire tore through a Baltimore County home early Monday. The fire began around 2 a.m. on Glenberry Court in Jacksonville. Everyone inside was able to escape but one person has been taken to the hospital as a precaution. A wall inside has completely collapsed and the home is already considered a total loss.

Crews had to bring water to the location as the area does not have any hydrants nearby. Officials are still investigating the cause but say a 500-gallon oil tank under the home helped feed the fire.

30-40 firefighters are at the scene continuing to put out the fire.
