Laurel Garage Fire - 12800 Block of Cedarbrook Lane

Prince George's County Firefighters have battled their third unrelated attached garage fire in just over 24 hours. 

Firefighters work to contain fire in the garage of a
home on Cedarbrook Lane in Laurel.
At about 1:15 pm, Tuesday, April 12, 2011, firefighters from Laurel responded to a reported house fire in the 12800 block of Cedarbrook Lane.  Upon arrival, firefighters encountered a working fire in an attached garage of a 2-story house.  Firefighters were able to quickly contain and extinguish the fire preventing any extension in to the house.  At this point, no injuries have been reported.  The cause of this fire appears to be accidental and started while an occupant was working on a car engine inside the garage. Fire loss estimates are still being tabulated.

At about 10:00 am, Monday, April 11, 2011, firefighters battled a fire that originated in the garage and spread into the structure causing $250,000 in estimated fire loss.  The cause of the fire appears to be accidental and attributed to an electrical malfunction.  The family is displaced.

Later Monday, just after 6:00 pm, a fire appears to have started in the garage in an Accokeek home causing more then $300,000 in estimated fire loss.  The cause of this fire remains under investigation.  This family was also displaced.
