To the Editor:
What a tragedy it was to see a beautiful home on the corner or Beach Road and Morningside Road destroyed by fire on Sunday, May 20. It was a very windy day and this precarious situation was compounded by the heightened winds of a beachfront location.
Kudos to the Ocean City Fire Department for saving the surrounding homes. If you look at the video posted on the OCFD Facebook page you will see for yourself what an amazing job they did.
When they arrived on the scene the house was already totally engulfed. It is astonishing that they were able to keep it contained to the one home. Great job, OCFD!
