Six ice cream trucks were damaged by fire Monday afternoon at a Bladensburg ice cream distribution company, Prince George’s County fire department officials said.
Firefighters responded to the blaze at the Buchanan Street facility just after 2 p.m., said Mark Brady, a Prince George’s fire department spokesman. The trucks usually park outside Berliner Specialty Distributors, where the fire erupted, he said.
The fire started in one ice cream truck — the type that typically roam the streets on hot summer days — and spread to two trucks parked on either side and three parked behind, Brady said. It took firefighters about 15 minutes to extinguish the blaze, he added.
The truck where the fire started was most likely destroyed, Brady said, while the two next to it sustained significant damage. The three in the back suffered only cosmetic damage.
There were no injuries, and the cause of the fire is under investigation, according to Brady. Officials are tabulating the total cost of the damage.
