UMES Greenhouse Damaged By Fire

PRINCESS ANNE, Md. (AP) — A greenhouse at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore campus has been damaged by fire.

Fire crews were called to the campus Sunday afternoon as heavy smoke billowed from the building in Princess Anne.

Fire officials told WMDT-TV that the fire broke out in a large greenhouse filled with cardboard, but no one was inside. The Daily Times of Salisbury reports that the greenhouses that house orchid growing projects by UMES and partners Jet Green Group, of Beijing, China, and its Maryland incorporated subsidiary U.S. Orchid Laboratory and Nursery, was heavily damaged by the blaze.

    “The Daily Times of Salisbury reports that the greenhouses …… was heavily damaged by the blaze.”

    Subject verb agreement is a simple thing, why can’t WJZ get it right? I bet most junior high schoolers would.

    It is also a conflict as the first part of the story says it was one greenhouse that was involved, not several as the last sentence implies. So much for accuracy and grammar. Way to go WJZ!
