Small Fire Handled Quickly in Vacant Garage

Just after 1:00 PM, Firefighters from the Lanham area of Prince George’s County Maryland were alerted to a 911 call reporting smoke coming from a garage. Engine 848 and Truck 828, West Lanham Hills #2 and #1 respectively, were the first suppression units to arrive on the scene at 9308 Annapolis Road. They encountered a 1 ½ stories, 20’ X 40’, detached garage located on obviously vacant/abandoned property with smoke showing. First arriving crews stretched hoselines and forced entry into the structure and initiated an interior attack and search of the structure. The fire was quickly contained and extinguished by first arriving units in about 5 minutes. No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
