What's REALLY Going On?

Multi-alarm fire at Maryland building housing Army intelligence group

Published: Friday October 20, 2006

A blogger has reported that a multi-alarm fire which scorched a Fort Meade, Md. compound houses an Army counterintelligence group. The report has been confirmed by at least one media source who saw the group's sign outside the building.

The blog, Mia Culpa, quoted information from an article at "Officials say they do not know why the military building at 4554 Llewellyn Avenue caught fire."

When the blogger googled the address, it pulled up the website of the 902D Military Intelligence Group, nicknamed "The Deuce." The site describes the group as the "US Army's largest Counterintelligence Unit, conducting the full range of CI activities, throughout the spectrum of conflict, and at all echelons, from tactical to strategic."

According to a county fire department spokesman quoted in an article at The Capital, "sixty-nine firefighters started streaming to the scene just after 3 p.m." The fire appears to have burned the upper floors of the building. A minor injury to a firefighter was the only one reported, according to the article.
