A firefighter required basic life support and another suffered nonserious injuries after responding Wednesday evening to a Rockville house fire that burned through a deck and displaced a family of four, according to rescue officials.

Firefighters called to 10 Lamp Post Court at about 7:30 p.m. found a heavy fire that had started on the back deck of the house had spread to the second floor and attic, Montgomery County Fire & Rescue Service spokesman Pete Piringer tweeted.

The deck burned away and collapsed as about 65 firefighters worked to extinguish the flames. The bulk of the fire, which caused about $650,000 in damages, was put out before 8 p.m.

The family and their pets were accounted for, except for one cat that could not be found Wednesday night, according to Piringer.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, according to Piringer. Additional information on the condition of the injured firefighters or if they were hospitalized was not available Thursday morning.
