Two Prince George’s County Workers Suffer Burn Injuries

By Alpert Schreyer on June 27, 2013

Two workers have been injured in a fire at an auto body shop in Laurel, Maryland. As reported by on June 7, 2013, both workers suffered burn injuries in the fire and vapor explosion. The auto body repair shop is located on Minnick Road in the 5300 block. The workers who suffered burn injuries were working in a paint stall when flames ignited and an explosion followed. The body shop’s sprinkler system was activated by the fire which kept the fire under control until firefighters could get there to extinguish it.

According to Prince George’s County fire officials, one worker’s injuries may be life threatening. He was taken to a Baltimore area burn unit where he was listed in critical condition with 2nd and 3rd degree burns on over half of his body. The second injured worker was less severely injured and was taken to a Washington D.C. burn center.

Damage to the business has been estimated to be $20,000. The official cause of the fire and the explosion are still unknown. Prince George’s County fire officials are in the process of investigating. Even though the investigation is ongoing, fire officials did say that it appears that a vapor explosion happened. Cars and trucks that have been painted are left in an area to be air-dried after work has been completed on them. This appears to have been where the first vapor explosion happened. The Haz-Mat team responded because hazardous materials were present.
