On Saturday, June 5, 2021, at approximately 9:40 p.m., firefighters from NAS Patuxent River and Bay District were alerted to 46593 Valley Court in Lexington Park, for the reported small trash can on fire threatening a structure. Approximately 5 minutes later, the assignment was upgraded to a working structure fire after St. Mary’s County Emergency Communications Center received multiple 911 calls reporting fire was visible, with one caller reporting a possible HVAC unit was on fire. The upgraded assignment brought firefighters from NAS Patuxent River, Bay District, Hollywood, and Leonardtown to the scene. Engine 132 from NAS Patuxent River arrived on the scene less than 3 minutes after the assignment was upgraded to find fire showing from a one-story pool house. Upon making entry into the structure, crews reported the fire extended into the ceiling and roof. Firefighters controlled in under 25 minutes, and extinguished the fire in under 45 minutes. No injuries were reported. The Office of the Maryland State Fire Marshal responded to the scene and is investigating the fire. SMECO responded to assist firefighters in securing the buildings utilities. Updates will be provided when they become available.
