Family Reflects After Fire Destroys Their Home

“Our two dogs started barking at the basement and we could hear a crackling sound,” said homeowner Jennifer Frye. “My husband got up to check it out and the whole side of the house was orange. He said it’s on fire call 911 and get out.”

Washington County, Md. - More than 60 firefighters from Washington, Frederick, Jefferson and Loudoun counties spent New Years Eve battling a massive fire on 19502 Keep Tryst Road. 

“Our two dogs started barking at the basement and we could hear a crackling sound,” said homeowner Jennifer Frye. “My husband got up to check it out and the whole side of the house was orange. He said it’s on fire call 911 and get out.”

The house is a complete loss. The Frye’s went back to the home Wednesday morning to see if there was anything they could salvage.

“We found some family photos,” said Frye. “Were just trying to get a sense of what’s left here.”

The Fire Marshal is investigating the cause of the fire, but Frye believe she has an idea what sparked the blaze.

“We have a hot tub. We’re pretty sure that where the electrical panel is, it started outside,” said Frye.

Eight people live at the home, but only four were inside the house at the time of the fire.

Frye says she and her family have a lot of memories in the home and they do plan to rebuild.

The Frye family would also like to thank the community, family and friends for their outpouring support during this difficult time.
