Families Seek Answers After Largo Townhouse Fire

A camera attached to a Largo, Maryland, townhouse showed investigators some of the devastation of a large fire that damaged four residences Monday night.

Nine people were left without a home after the fire tore through the rear of a townhouse and damaged three others, Prince George's County fire officials said. Firefighters were called to the 11500 block of Dunloring Drive about 12:30 p.m. Monday.

Video showed the flames from where investigators believe the fire started. Smoke, fire and water damaged three other homes.

No other injuries were reported, but officials said eight adults and a child were displaced by the fire.

Prince George's County Fire Department spokesman Mark Brady said investigators trying to establish the cause were able to fairly quickly narrow their focus after an arson dog detected accelerants.

A GoFundMe page was established to help out one of the families involved in the fire.
