Massive Fire Destroys Bowie Home

LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — A massive fire completely destroyed a house in Bowie early Tuesday morning.

All residents of the home are safe, escaping without injury after neighbors banged on the door to alert them to the blaze.

Firefighters say the home, located in the 1800 block of Peechtree Lane, was showing heavy fire when they arrived and needed additional crews to assist them.

Pictures tweeted by fire officials show a neighboring home also sustained damage.

The cause of the fire is not immediately clear.
