Pr. George's firefighters hurt battling blaze

Two Prince George’s County firefighters were injured Monday battling a blaze that damaged several lockers at a Landover Hills storage facility, authorities said.

The men, both 26, sustained lacerations to their hands battling the blaze that ripped through 7 to 10 lockers at the Mini-U-Storage facility at 3800 64th Ave., authorities said. They were taken to area hospitals and are in good condition, authorities said.

The fire, which began just before 1:30 p.m., destroyed furniture, boxes of paper, automotive equipment and “a myriad of other combustible items” that were kept in the lockers, said Mark Brady, a spokesman for the Prince George’s fire department. It took 60 firefighters almost 45 minutes to knock down the blaze, he said.
