A firefighter puts water on a flare-up on the rear of a Bladensburg home Wednesday. Three fire departments, Utica, Homer and Bladensburg, responded to a call of a house fire in the 3800-block of McLarnan Road. The fire occurred shortly before 8 p.m. in the rear of a vacant home. The heat from the home melted the siding of a garage next door. No injuries were reported. Fire officials are still investigating the cause of the blaze.
