Damascus home damaged in fire

(WJLA) - Investigators are trying to find out what caused a fire that damaged a historic farmhouse in Damascus Thursday evening.

The fire broke out on Mountain View Road. Two people inside the home escaped and one suffered minor injuries.

There were no fire hydrants in the area, but the firetrucks carried more than enough water to fight the blaze.

Just days ago, the house across the street caught fire, but officials say the two fires are not related.
