Fire damages Aberdeen warehouse Monday

No one was injured in a fire early Monday afternoon that caused an estimated $50,000 in damage to an Aberdeen warehouse.

The single-alarm fire, reported at 1 p.m., was under control by about 1:45 p.m., according to Rich Gardiner, of the Harford County Volunteer Fire & EMS Association.

The commercial building is owned by Hermaco Properties and is home to Hadry Masonry.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, according to a notice of investigation from the Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office.

Gardiner said about 30 firefighters remained at the warehouse in the 700 block of West Bel Air Avenue as of about 2:30 p.m. for overhaul operations, which entail checking for hot spots and removing burned items from the fire site, Gardiner wrote in an email.

About 25 firefighters from Aberdeen Fire Department, Susquehanna Hose Company of Havre de Grace and Abingdon and Level volunteer fire companies responded and had the fire under control in about 20 minutes, fire investigators said.

The fire caused $20,000 in damage to the building and $30,000 to its contents, according to the Fire Marshal's Office.
