Fire Damages Maryland Park Junior High

Units from Capitol Heights and surrounding communities respond to a fire at the old Maryland Park Junior High School, located at 505 65th Street. The fire heavily damaged two of the three floors of this vacant school building and there was a partial roof collapse. The building had been vacant for about five (5) years prior to the fire. Master streams were used to bring this fire under control. Shortly after this fire the building was torn down. This site is now occupied by a church (200 block of Maryland Park Drive).
