On June 14, 2023, the Frederick County Emergency Communications Center received multiple calls with reports of a house fire with possible entrapment in the 1700 block of Brookshire Run in Point of Rocks. Within minutes, units from Frederick County Fire and Rescue, and Loudoun County Fire and Rescue arrived on scene to find fire showing throughout a two-story single-family home. A neighboring resident informed crews that they believed a resident was home and had not been seen evacuating. A Rapid Intervention Dispatch was quickly requested as crews began to attack the fire from the exterior. The fire progressed rapidly causing the roof and floor to collapse. It took an estimated 60 firefighters around 45 minutes to control the fire and make access into the home. A deceased adult male was located upon entry. There was no damage to any other structures and no other injuries. The Frederick County Fire Marshal’s Office and the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office were investigating.
