No cause has been determined for a fire that began in a garage in the rear of Laurel Fuel Oil on March 6, but the third-generation Main Street business is “up and operating” after only losing a couple hours of phone time, owner Richard Kluckhuhn said.
Laurel Police, followed by close to 100 local and county firefighters, arrived at the oil and heating business at 101 Main St. at about 7 p.m. to find smoke and heavy fire coming from a garage. Old Town residents reported hearing helicopters hovering over the area, and Prince George’s County Fire and EMS Spokesman Mark Brady sent a Twitter message that indicated the fire was “showing from a garage near the MARC” train station.
Kluckhuhn this week said the fuel trucks parked in the garage were not indicated to be the cause of the fire, which broke out in front of the parked trucks. He also said the amount of damages has not been finalized.
There were no injuries in the fire.
