High Winds Blamed For Denton Fire

Fire officials say heavy winds caused a garage fire to spread to three other buildings in Denton, destroying all four structures. The blaze took more than two hours to bring under control with more than 90 firefighters from Caroline and Talbot Counties responding. An old elementary school owned by the Caroline County Historical Society sustained heat damage from the flames. The cause of the fire is under investigation. No one was inside any of the buildings, and no one was injured. Damage is estimated at $120,000.
