Hillcrest Heights House Fire with Civilian Fatality

Media Contact: Alan C. Doubleday, Assistant Fire Chief,

Just after 2:00 am, Friday, September 15th, Prince Georges County Firefighter/Medics responded to a house fire in Hillcrest Heights. Units arrived in the 1900 block of Callaway Street to find a 1-story with basement single family house with fire showing from the basement. Firefighters found excessive storage conditions throughout the structure. A partial collapse of the structure occurred as the fire was extinguished. 

A detailed secondary search of the structure resulted in locating a deceased person. 

Fire Investigators are currently working to determine the cause of the fire. Fire loss is estimated at $110,000. Identification of the deceased is not yet available.
