A mid-morning alert for a garage fire was dispatched at 10:12 am to Gamber & Community Fire Co. and neighboring departments on Sunday. Units responded to reports of a garage fire in the 3400 block of Clover Meadow Court, cross street Deer Park Road, just off of Rt. 91.

Captain 13 arrived on the scene, reported smoke showing, and discovered a lawn mower fire inside a three-car garage with most of the fire put out by the homeowner. A connecting door between the garage and the living area had been left open resulting in some smoke and heat damage inside the house and the activation of one residential sprinkler head inside the house.

Units remained on the scene briefly to check for extension and for smoke removal.

Units: Engine 134, Engine/Tanker 133, Medic 139, Utility 13.
Mutual Aid: Reese and Sykesville; Baltimore County units from Reisterstown and Upperco.
