OWINGS, Md. (AP) - Authorities say an SUV crashed into a Calvert County strip mall, sparking a fire.

The county sheriff’s office says in a release that the vehicle crashed into Bright Center West in Owings along Southern Maryland Boulevard early Wednesday. When authorities arrived, both the vehicle and the strip mall were on fire and the driver was already out of the vehicle, being helped by others.

Chief Bill Rector of the Dunkirk Volunteer Fire Department says two firefighters injured battling the blaze were treated and released and a third hurt while cleaning up the scene is in stable condition.

The Calvert County Sheriff’s Office says the driver, 32-year-old Vincent Troy of Upper Marlboro, was charged with driving under the influence.
