Mahoney’s Open for Business Following Fire
Mahoney’s Garden Center in Falmouth is open for business after a fire destroyed a garage on site Tuesday afternoon.
Firefighters were called to Mahoney's around 3:30 pm Tuesday. The fire started in a garage that was used as a workspace and storage facility. Staff members were able to remove much of the machinery that was stored in the garage. No one was injured in the blaze.
According to Falmouth Fire Chief Mark Sullivan, it took about an hour to get the fire under control. The fire also caused Rt. 28 to go down to one lane for two hours.
The Falmouth Fire Rescue Department is investigating the fire. While officials are not sure yet what caused the blaze, they believe the fire was accidental.
Sullivan said the garage is a total loss. Insurance adjusters were on site today calculating the loss.
The garden center is back in business just a day after the fire.
Office Manager Jan Leone said she is glad no one was injured and thanked the Falmouth Fire Department for its hard work.
