Odenton residents were stunned Wednesday to see an large apartment fire in Seven Oaks, just a month after a blaze struck another nearby building.
Photographer Josh Kruger was on scene for the latest blaze, and captured these images of firefighters in action. Many of the images feature members of the Fort Meade Fire Department, which came to assist Anne Arundel County firefighters in the two-alarm incident.
Fort Meade's Facebook page offered a glimpse at how installation firefighters came to the scene.
"Firefighters assigned to Truck 45 noticed smoke as they were driving on Maryland Route 175 and turned around to investigate. Engine 45 also responded.
“The rapid actions of our firefighters along with solid tactics during the initial fight saved the structure, preventing about two-thirds of the individual apartments from receiving any damage,” said Lt. Col. J. Darrell Sides, Emergency Services director and provost marshal."
