Three Alarm Fire In Watergate Apartment Complex In Annapolis

| April 25, 2013, 11:50 AM | 2 Comments

A three alarm fire erupted in the Watergate apartment complex on Americana Drive in Annapolis around 10:30 AM this morning.


According to Battalion Chief John Menassa, the fire started in a fifth  floor common-area laundry room and quickly spread to the ceiling above it. Crews were able to stop the spread relatively quickly.

When crews arrived on the scene the fire had already gone through the roof. There were no reported injuries and everybody was evacuated safely. There was no initial estimate on damage other than to say that the laundry room was pretty well destroyed.

The fire was put under control at 11:15 AM and called out 18 pieces of equipment and more than 70 firefighters from Annapolis, Anne Arundel County, and Prince George’s County.

Americana  Drive is currently shut down at Norman Avenue. Access to the complex is restricted and residents and visitors should expect to park in the Eastport shopping center and walk to their ultimate destination.

    “… the fire started in a bit floor laundry room …”

    Which floor? Not sure I’m aware of which is the ‘bit floor’. And is there any indication as to which building?

    Thank you
