Quick response minimizes fire

BOONSBORO - A Boonsboro fire that took two minutes to extinguish kept a restaurant closed for more than four hours Saturday as firefighters waited for a fire marshal to arrive.
Fire broke out in an office above Heather B's Pub at 1 N. Main Street just before noon, said Troy Lloyd, deputy chief of the First Hose Co. of Boonsboro.
Boonsboro firefighter Richard Brown used 200 gallons of water to put the fire out within two minutes, preventing the small blaze from spreading to the apartments in the rear of the building, Lloyd said.
