More than 60 firefighters responded to a three-alarm fire at an apartment in Watergate Village Thursday morning in Annapolis.
Annapolis Fire Department Captain John Bowes said the fire broke out at the top of a building in the apartment complex, located at 700 Americana Drive. Smoke was seen in a fifth-floor unit by firefighters when they arrived at 10:37 a.m.
There are no injuries reported at this time, Bowes said. Three different agencies—Annapolis Fire Department, Anne Arundel County Fire Department and the U.S. Naval Academy Fire Department—responded to the scene, because the building did not have sprinklers, Bowes said.
It is unknown how many tenants were displaced as a result of the fire, and the amount of damage has not yet been assessed, Bowes said.
