UPDATE: (Monday, 10:13 a.m.)—Annapolis firefighters responded to a fire in a single-family home in the Admiral Heights neighborhood around 5 p.m. on Sunday.
A passerby noticed smoke coming from the second-floor window of a home in the 1700 block of Cedar Park Road, said Battalion Chief John Menassa. No one was home at the time of the fire, and Menassa said the owners were in the process of renovating it.
Fire investigators from the Annapolis Fire and Explosives Services Unit determined the fire was accidental—started by items left too close to a heat source.
Smoke spread throughout the second floor of the home and caused damages in excess of $10,000, Menassa said.
