Early morning on December 5th, emergency response officials responded to a call about a fire in a residential outbuilding. The 911 call was received at approximately 3:16 AM from a neighbor of Michael and Dave Stamper, the owners of the property.

Singerly Fire Company responded to the scene of the two-alarm fire at 929 Blake Road in Elkton, Maryland. 30 personnel from the Company, as well as two other fire departments, worked to put out the fire, which took approximately 45 minutes to extinguish. Deputy State Fire Marshals are currently conducting an origin and cause investigation of the house fire and have found no evidence of working smoke detectors in the property.
