Fire destroys two Largo businesses

A Largo building housing American Lawnmower and Sozio's Lawn and Tree was destroyed in a fire on Wednesday evening. American Lawnmower at 204 Woodrow Ave. NW caught fire around 8 p.m. when two workers who were cutting steel in the shop with a cutting torch ignited gas vapors, said Tim Wedin, an assistant fire marshal in Largo. It took 20 firefighters 30 minutes to bring the single-alarm fire under control. There were no injuries.
