Brentwood, MD -- Firefighters in suburban Washington, D.C., say they had to resort to battling a blaze with foam because the burning house was so full of "stuff" they couldn't work inside.
Prince George's County firefighters were called to the two-story home in Brentwood, Md., on Friday evening. They tried to get inside but had to evacuate because of what they call "hoarder conditions" inside the home. Fire officials say combustibles were stacked from floor to ceiling in some parts of the house.
A department spokesman says the firefighters retreated and decided to fight the fire with foam from the outside instead. Foam is used to coat the burning material and smother the fire.
No injuries were reported.
The damage is estimated at $25,000.
