A fire tore through the back portion of a house in the Aurora Hills section of Millersville on Wednesday morning.
Firefighters responded shortly before 9:30 a.m. to the 1200 block of Ammendale Court and found smoke pouring out of the home, according to Batallion Chief Steve Thompson of the Anne Arundel County Fire Department. It took about 30 minutes for crews to get the fire under control.
The fire severly damaged the back portion of the home, and there was evidence that fire poured out of upstairs windows.
There was no one home at the time of the fire and no reports of injuries, Thompson said.
Investigators had not yet revealed a cause of the fire or a damage estimate.
