Engine 1 and Truck 1 arrived on scene and stood fast until being placed in service by command. Crews operated on scene for roughly one hour as the fire was contained to the garage despite windy conditions and nearby exposures. Assistant Chief 1 (O'Barsky) had the command. Maryland State Fire Marshal is currently investigating the cause of the fire.
