ATM fire temporarily closes APG FCU branch
EDGEWOOD, Md. (9/4/12)--A fire at an outdoor ATM closed down a branch of Aberdeen Proving Ground FCU (APGFCU) for a few hours Friday morning.

The ATM at the $876 million asset credit union's Forest Hill, Md. branch caught fire at 9:05 a.m.  The Bel Air Volunteer Fire Co. extinguished the fire and all members and employees at the credit union were safe and unharmed, the credit union said in a press release (Baltimore Sun Aug. 31).

The freestanding ATM is located in a drive through lane at the branch and the fire was isolated in the ATM.  Fire officials indicated the fire may have been caused by an electrical wire connected to an air conditioning unit within the machine.

"All of our people are safe and they are our priority," said APGFCU President/CEO Don Lewis in the press release. "Our next steps are to determine the cause, repair the damage and review our facility."

The credit union reopened at noon.
