Easton, MD-On July 8, 2024, a devastating fire destroyed a detached garage in the 29000 block of Corbin Pkwy in Easton, Talbot County, Maryland. The Easton Volunteer Fire Department responded to the incident, battled the fire, and successfully controlled it in approximately one hour.

The detached garage was a 14' x 21' wood-framed structure, and the property was a total loss as a result of the fire. A passerby first noticed the garage engulfed in flames and quickly alerted the occupants of the main residence.

The financial loss as a result of the fire was substantial. The garage structure and its contents, which included a motorcycle and various tools, suffered an estimated $50,000 in damages.
