Emergency Call Back Due to Wind Driven Fires

Numerous wind driven brush fires throughout Prince George's County has resulted in the emergency call back to work of firefighters. The largest incident involves about 100 acres of 30 foot high piles of mulch. The brush fire has extended about 2 miles over to Interstate 95. This fire has been burning since 12 noon and is still considered out of control.

Fire Chief Bashoor has ordered the opening of the Emergency Operations Center to coordinate resources and to have an encompassing view of the county.
