Fire damages historic pipe organ factory

By Washington Post editors

A fire that broke out Thursday has damaged part of the historic M.P. Moller Pipe Organ factory in Hagerstown, according to the Herald-Mail.

Investigators are continuing to investigate the cause of the blaze that burned for three hours before firefighters were able to extinguish it. The building was an important landmark in the city's downtown area.

The factory dates to 1895. It features a three-story assembly room with windows that enabled people passing by to see the huge organs being built.

The building is now occupied by Eastern Organ Pipes, a small business with just seven workers.
