ASPEN HILL, Md. — Montgomery County fire officials say at least 14 families are without a home after a four-alarm fire at an apartment building in Aspen Hill.

Flames broke out around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday and engulfed the entire top floor of one of three buildings at the Manor Apartments complex on Georgia Avenue.

Fire officials say a 25-year-old man who was trying to help other residents was taken to a hospital as a precaution for smoke inhalation.

Assistant Fire Chief Scott Graham says that the fire gutted six or seven units completely and that 14 families were immediately displaced. The residents of all three buildings were displaced for the evening.

Officials still are trying to determine what caused the fire.
