Around 5AM on February 27th, Engine and Rescue Squad 715 were alerted to the 17700 block of Norwood Rd in Sandy Spring for the report of smoke filling the house. Units arrived to find smoke showing from the roof of a 1 story, single family home, connected to a larger 2 story home by a breezeway. RS715 arrived, performed searches, controlled utilities, and assisted with opening up. E715 was also assigned to assist with opening up.
