A fire broke out at the Prince George’s County courthouse on Wednesday, destroying a large section of the 126 year-old building. Two floors of courthouse were damaged. The old courthouse is connected to a modern wing by a series of corridors.
This is the second time the courthouse has been on fire in a little over two years. The P.G. Courthouse was gutted by fire in November 2004, just months before the courthouse was scheduled to open after a $25 million renovation. It is absolutely amazing this happened again. No word yet on the cause of the fire.
