Fast moving fire leaves four homeless in Ocean Pines

One of the largest fires in recent years destroyed a home in Ocean Pines last week, leaving four residents in their early 20s displaced and in a state of shock.

Out of those ashes, however, a community has come together to support them.

According to Ocean Pines Fire Department Chief Steve Grunewald, a 911 call came in at about 12:30 a.m. on Thursday and his company was the first to respond to the home on 173 Sandyhook Road.

Things developed quickly.

“I was there within six minutes of the call and the fire was through the roof already,” Grunewald said. “I immediately pulled a second alarm.”

Additional responders included companies from Showell, Berlin, Bishopville, Newark, Ocean City and Willards in Maryland, as well as Selbyville, Roxana and Frankford, Delaware.
