OCEAN PINES, Md.- A two-story, single family home was destroyed Thursday night after becoming engulfed in flames.  A spokesman from the Ocean Pines Volunteer Fire Department said the home was in the St. Martin's River on the Bay Complex on River View Drive.

A witness said everyone made it out of the home safely but the home is a total loss. 

After responding to that fire in Ocean Pines, crews were called to the scene of another house fire in West Ocean City.  Flames broke out around 7:30 p.m. on Old Bridge Road. The home sits next to the Diakonia Shelter.

Some witnesses said they could see the smoke as far away as 17th street in Ocean City.  No injuries were reported as both fires are still under investigation in Worcester County.
