At around 4:45 pm, Monday, February 23, Prince George's County Firefighters were alerted to a house fire in the 12800 block of Princeleigh Street in Kettering (Upper Marlboro mailing address).  Firefighters from Largo Fire/EMS Station 846 and Battalion Chief 881 were the first to arrive and found a 1-story single family home with smoke showing from the front door and roof with fire showing from a kitchen window in the rear.

The fire was quickly contained and extinguished.  Fire loss is estimated at $100,000 with 2 adults and 3 children being displaced.

The fire started in the kitchen and the exact cause is under investigation.

One firefighter sustained a shoulder injury and transported to a local hospital for treatment.

The competition to raise fund for childhood cancer is on!!!  Captain of Team PGFD 2015 Rob Kight has found a challenger, Rebecca Richardson, for the St. Baldricks event to be held on March 15 in Annapolis.  Which one will raise more money??  Will either one beat the rest of the Team??  Will a newly appointed Deputy Fire Chief raise more friendly funds??

Let's be honest, which one of the below would you rather see have their locks cut???  Rebecca or Rob??  Rebecca is no stranger to raising funds for charity.  Just two of the charities Rebecca has been involved in are "PGFD Proud to Wear Pink Campaign" and "Wounded Warrior Project."  She was also part of the team that was successful in PGFD having PINK Fire/EMS units.  Our newest Pink Fire Engine "Courage" will be at Fados for the St. Baldricks event.

Make your vote in the form of a donation today.  Yes, we felt sorry for Rob and gave him a "head" start in raising funds.

You should also join in the fun at Fados Pub on West Street in Annapolis and cheer on and take pictures and videos of Team PGFD 2015 as they work to beat their goal of $10,000.  Rumor is that recently appointed Deputy Fire Chief Dennis Wood will be there to shave his head with 14 other members of the Prince George's County Fire/EMS Department and family.
