A fire in a Bowie townhouse Saturday afternoon caused the structure to give way, according to the Prince George's County Fire Department.

Crews were at the scene of the house fire in the 13900 block of Grenfell Place at approximately 4:45 p.m. on Saturday, the fire department reported.

When first responders arrived, the top floor of the three-story townhome was filled with heavy smoke, firefighters reported.

Due to heavy fire, the home had partly collapsed as of 4:55 p.m., according to the report, which said crews called for additional support through a second alarm.

By 5:15 p.m. the fire was mostly knocked, according to officials, and crews were evacuated because the structure was unstable. There were reportedly no injuries.
