Early morning fire damages Laurel garage

An early morning fire in a Laurel house garage required departments from three counties to extinguish, but Howard County officials said no one was injured in the blaze.

Officials said at approximately 3:30 a.m. departments from Howard, Anne Arundel and Prince George's counties responded to a report of a fire in the 9500 block of Old Lantern Way. The fire crews discovered smoke emanating from the detached garage of a single story residence. Residents had evacuated the home, and the fire had not spread to any neighboring structures, officials said.
