Dear Neighbors,

This morning, shortly after 2:30, Fire and Life Safety responded to a house fire in the 1000 block of Carys Chapel Road in Tabb. Upon arrival, firefighters encountered heavy smoke and fire conditions at the residence. They were able to account for one of two reported occupants of the residence.  During search and rescue operations crew found the second occupant. The resident was removed and transported to the hospital and subsequently passed away. Four firefighters were overcome by heat while conducting operations and were transported to local hospitals. All of our firefighters have been treated and released and are recovering this morning. The cause of the fire is under investigation at this time.
