A fire fueled flammable glue caused nearly $75,000 damage to an upper Park Heights home Sunday morning.
No one was injured, according to Lt. Edmund Schwartz, Jr. of the Baltimore County Fire Department's Station No. 2 in Pikesville.
The Pikesville Volunteer Fire Company and Station 2 were called to the home in the 7500 Seven Mile Lane in Pikesville, near Suburban Orthodox Congregation at 11:20 a.m.
"The occupants were putting in new flooring in the kitchen with flammable glue," Schwartz said.
When firefighters arrived, they saw a lit candle on a table in the front room, he said.
Schwartz said the "candle or pilot light" ignited a flash fire.
There was smoke damage throughout the house, fire damage in two rooms and water damage to the basement, Schwartz said.
The family who lives there is being taken care of by neighbors, Schwartz said.
