Accokeek Mulch Fire

After three hours, firefighters have declared a fire involving a large pile of mulch extinguished.

Around 3:00 am firefighters from Accokeek were alerted to an outside fire at Berry Road and Manning Road. Upon arrival units encountered a deep seated fire in a tall and large pile of mulch. These fires are often difficult and work intensive to completely extinguish.

Additional firefighters and water tankers were called to the scene to assist in efforts to extinguish the fire.

No structures were involved and no injuries reported. The cause of the fire is undetermined and fire loss is still being considered.

At this time there is no additional information.
