Townhouse fire in Ashburn Village (South of Gloucester, North of Waxpool)

Lake front property, completely destroyed. I hope the residents are safe! 7:30 and still 15+ Fire and Rescue on the scene.

Prayers for the family.

I was fishing the pond behind that row of townhouses a few hundreds yards from them. I was only there for 5-10 minutes and I could smell some smoke occasionally, figured it was a grill or fireplace. I didn't see any smoke or glow. Didin't catch anything so I moved across the street and started fishing the other pond. I heard a pop really didn't know what it was. For whatever reason I looked back across the street and there was now a dark column of smoke.

I ran back over there make sure of it and called it in while I ran up to the street and the front of the house to get the address. The call taker second-guessed the address I gave. Told her I was sure because I was standing right in front of it. I know she questioned me because of all the calls coming from the other side of the lake that face the back of the house where the fire was. Those people couldn't give the street name obviously because all the first arriving units went to that street. I remember a couple walking past there on the trail just a minute after I started fishing. Apparently even they didn't notice anything despite going right past it.

I really hate when people call 911 and can't give accurate locations of the event they are reporting. It can do more harm than good.
