Two minutes after firefighters were called to a building fire on West Antietam Street Thursday night, other units were on their way to a house fire on Winter Street, according to a Hagerstown news release.
The second fire at 237 Winter St., was called in at 10:59 p.m., the release said. The fire was contained to the bedroom of the house, but there was smoke damage throughout the house, the release said.
No one was injured, although a family pet died in the blaze, the release said.
The cause of the fire was still being investigated, Hagerstown Fire Marshal Doug DeHaven.
City firefighters who were not already involved in battling the large fire in an abandoned five-story building at 21 W. Antietam St., responded to Winter Street, along with units from the Longmeadow, Halfway and Maugansville volunteer fire companies, the release said.
The Winter Street scene was cleared at 12:45 a.m. Friday, the release said.
