Three Alarm fire in Laurel
Mon. Feb 22nd 2010

 

Story courtesy of PGFDfire.com.

Mon. Feb 22nd 2010

 

Just before 3 pm this afternoon, firefighters from Laurel, Beltsville, Greenbelt and near by companies along with units from Anne Arundel County Fire Department were alerted for a reported an apartment building on fire in the 13000 block of Mistletoe Spring Rd, The Willow Lake Apartments.

 

First arriving units reported heavy fire showing from the top floor with fire extending to the attic area of a three-story garden style apartment building

 

Firefighters attempted to enter the building to make an aggressive attack on the fire, but due to heavy fire conditions and the possibility of a roof collapse they where forced from the building and had to attack the fire from the outside.

 

With heavy fire conditions and the fire extending into the attic area a second alarm was transmitted bringing over 75 more firefighters to help battle the fire.

 

As firefighters were making an attack on the fire from the outside a partial collapse of the roof occurred and with still heavy fire conditions and the possibility of the fire extending into adjacent buildings a third alarm was sounded bringing units from Kentland, Bunker Hill as well as units from Montgomery and Howard County to the scene

 

It took firefighters over an hour to bring the fire under control with no injuries reported stated County fire officials,

 

Over two dozen people have been displaced as a result of the fire and the cause of the three alarm fire is under investigation
