Two people have been displaced following a two-alarm fire early Thursday at the Islander Inn in Edgemere.

The displaced residents lived in an apartment above the business. The restaurant was destroyed by the fire.

Fire units were dispatched at 1:33 a.m. for a report of a commercial building fire in the 9000 block of Cuckold Point Rd. First-arriving units found fire showing and quickly upgraded to a working fire profile, followed by a second alarm.

Commanders quickly ordered defensive operations because of the volume of fire. Firefighters supplemented the water supply from hydrants by drafting water from nearby sources.

One firefighter was transported to a local hospital with non life-threatening injuries or illness; another was treated at the scene.

The cause remains under investigation.
