    Firefighters battled a three-alarm fire at a commercial building in Prince George's County, Maryland, Monday afternoon.

    An open air loading dock with a roof caught fire at a warehouse for ABC Supply Co. Inc. -- a building supplies wholesaler -- in the 3400 block of Kenilworth Avenue, Mark Brady of the Prince George's County Fire Department said.

    The smoke could be seen from miles away.

    The fire did not reach the interior of the warehouse, which stores combustible materials, including pallets and roofing materials. The biggest concern was foam insulation, which is toxic when it melts.
