THURMONT, Md., and HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP and WHTM) — Firefighters continued extinguishing hotspots on the afternoon of June 29 after battling a fire at an overnight summer camp in western Maryland on the morning of June 29.

The fire has since been extinguished after a three hour battle that brought firefighters from Maryland and Pennsylvania together as a team. The building has been deemed a “total loss” and the damages are estimated to be $2 million.

The cause remains undetermined despite the Frederick County Fire Investigations Task Force investigating since June 29. However, fire officials have ruled out any intentional or suspicious factors. No one was injured, officials said.

Firefighters were initially dispatched at about 7:30 a.m. for a report of a fire in a building at Camp Airy for Boys in Thurmont, Campbell said.

When units arrived on scene, no one was in the building, but they found smoke showing through the roof and a second alarm was initiated, Campbell said. It took about 100 firefighters from Maryland and Pennsylvania three hours to bring the fire under control, but crews were still extinguishing hot spots in the building in the afternoon, she said.

Without fire hydrants near the camp, firefighters drew water from a large pond and two pools to battle the flames, Deputy Chief Kenny Poole said at a news conference.

Firefighters contained the blaze to the dining hall and no other buildings were involved, Campbell said.

In a Facebook post, the camp said it was too soon to know the extent of the damage the dining hall, but everyone is safe and accounted for. The dining hall is a hub of activity, so they are relocating many activities, the camp said. The Jewish overnight camp for boys and nearby Camp Louise for girls in Cascade were founded in the 1920s, according to their website.

Breakfast prep had begun when the smoke was noticed and people got out quickly, Marty Rochlin, director of the camp said at a news conference. They are planning to carry on camp as regularly as possible, he said.

“It’s a building most of us grew up in, had all our meals in as campers and as staff,” Rochlin said. “Thankfully, it’s just a building. Camp can continue because camp is the people.”

That includes people from the Midstate.

“My sister sent me the note to the parents” from Rochlin, said Jeanne Rogal of Harrisburg. “And I went looking and saw the fire, and I started having the memories of when I was there.”

That was as a parent, in her case, in the dozen or so years when her son Rob attended as a camper and then for years after that, when he was a counselor.

“Robbie met two kids there his first summer, and they stayed together through the whole thing,” Rogal said. “He went to bar mitzvahs.”
