Firefighters were called at 6:00 a.m. this morning to a two-alarm fire at 101 Longwood Road in Roland Park, according to WBAL. The fire quickly engulfed the back of the house and spread across the roof and rafters of the shingle-style house. Using 4 inch “attack hoses”, firefighters manned two ladder trucks in their efforts to contain the blaze.

A Roland Park neighbor reports that the house belongs to a young family with two elementary school-age children and a baby. The mother of the family first heard the crackling of the flames. It was not until after the fire engines arrived that the smoke detectors in the house went off.  Read More →
