A Sunday morning fire in Burkittsville, Maryland, significantly damaged a post office and the attached house, according to officials.

The Tanker Task Force, Fire Task Force and RID were requested for a structure fire at 10 E Main St around 7 a.m., according to Frederick County Fire.

A small section of roof partially collapsed before the fire was extinguished a little before 8:30 a.m. Multiple fire crews from Frederick and Washington counties were on the scene performing “ventilation and overhaul” at that time.

Below, see a map of the area where the fire took place:
