Four residents at 261 Bauer Drive in Maurertown were displaced Thursday following an early morning fire.
The fire started about 5:10 a.m., said Deputy Fire Chief Bill Streett, of the Shenandoah County Fire and Rescue Department, which responded to the fire.
Though the cause of the fire is under investigation, he said it started in a Rubbermaid shed located about 2 feet from the house and spread to the house.
The fire moved along the siding outside the house, he said, and into the attic, causing about $25,000 in fire and water damage. The damage made the house uninhabitable, Streett said.
The occupants of the house were awakened by the sound of the fire and wind outside, Street confirmed, and no injuries were reported. A smoke alarm inside the house was not triggered by the fire outside.
Departments from Woodstock, Toms Brook, Strasburg and Edinburg also responded to the fire. The Shenandoah County Fire Marshal’s office is investigating the cause of the fire, which Streett said was extinguished in about 15 minutes.
The American Red Cross is assisting the occupants, who were renting the house.
