Building Destroyed By Fire On Old Baltimore Pike

Newark – Today, Thursday April 13, 2017, just before 4:00 p.m. units from several fire companies responded to a report of a garage fire on South Old Baltimore Pike.

Arriving units were met with heavy smoke and fire. Fire crews battled for over an hour to bring the blaze under control.
