A two-alarm fire burned through an auto shop and affected traffic along Route 1 in Jessup on Sunday evening, according to the Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue Services.
Firefighters from Howard and neighboring Anne Arundel County were dispatched to the blaze in the 8100 block of Jenmar Road just before 5 p.m., said Jackie Cutler, a fire spokeswoman. When they arrived, the intensity of the fire forced them to work to contain the flames from outside the building only, she said.
Traffic along Route 1 was slowed due to the fire and the emergency response, Cutler said.
No immediate reports of injuries were reported, Cutler said.
