$300K loss in Classie Car blaze in Oakland

OAKLAND — Fire investigators continued Thursday to investigate the cause of an overnight fire at the Classie Car Company on Hutton Road where 20 vehicles were damaged. The property loss was estimated at $300,000.

It was 9:59 p.m. on Wednesday when the emergency center dispatched the Oakland Volunteer Fire Department to the scene.

First-arriving units found the 80-by-40-foot metal structure at 5026 Hutton Road fully involved in fire.

One firefighter suffered minor smoke inhalation injuries and was treated at Garrett Memorial Hospital.

The origin and cause of the fire remains under investigation by the Maryland State Fire Marshal’s Office.

The property owed by Don Nine was in the news last November when Nine applied for a junkyard license for the property. That application was unanimously denied by the Garrett County commissioners last December. A public hearing on the matter was conducted on Nov. 1 prior to the decision being made.

Ten vehicles housed inside the building were heavily damaged along with 10 vehicles located outside the structure, according to the fire marshal’s office.

The property loss was estimated by the fire marshal’s office at $300,000.

The emergency center alerted Deep Creek, Gorman, Terra Alta, Mount Grove and Aurora volunteer fire departments to assist Oakland firefighters.

Southern Rescue Squad took the injured firefighter to the hospital.

The Garrett County Sheriff’s Office and Potomac Edison personnel also responded to the scene.

Anyone with information about the fire is asked to contact the Western Regional Office of the State Fire Marshal at 301-766-3888.
