Mount Rainier Building Fire - 34th Street

Prince George’s County Firefighters battled a fire in Mount Rainier early Friday morning.  At around 3:30 am, August 31, firefighters were dispatched to a building fire in the 3800 block of 34th Street.  Fire/EMS units arrived to find fire showing from the roof of a 2-story building with a commercial occupancy on the first floor and an apartment on the second floor.

Firefighters quickly located a fire in the attic and extinguished it within 15 minutes of arrival.  The occupants were displaced and assisted by the County Citizen Services Unit.

Fire loss is estimated at $45,000 and the cause of the fire is “accidental” and attributed to an electrical malfunction.  No injuries were reported.
