COLUMBIA, Md. — Crews were on the scene of a fire at the building that houses Lincoln Technical Institute in Columbia. That is in the 9200 block of Snowden River Parkway.

The fire department said the fire involved a large portion of the roof of that commercial building but was not specifically in the college section of the building.

Firefighters told us the fire was in the roof and started near a solar panel.

No one was injured in this fire and the flames were all contained to the roof. It took firefighters several hours to get this under control.

Crews from surrounding counties had to come in and help fight this fire. Firefighters are opening up the roof to make sure there are no hot spots and that the fire is out.

Lincoln Technical Institute was not in session at the time of the fire. No word right now on whether or not the school be open tomorrow.
