Maryland | Two people injured in two-alarm building fire in Reisterstown

3 Caraway Road | 20 April 2012

An early morning fire heavily damaged an apartment unit in the Reisterstown section of Baltimore County. The fire at #3 Caraway Road was reported shortly after 2 a.m.

First arriving crews had fire through the roof of the complex and they quickly called for a second alarm. Initially people were reported trapped in the building, but fire crews quickly performed two searches and found that all residents had self-evacuated.

The fire was quickly contained to the middle of the group apartment building, although there were light smoke conditions in both #1 and #5 Caraway Road. Approximately 50 firefighters and 20 pieces of fire apparatus responded to the scene. A total of 11 individual units were damaged by the fire. Investigators estimate that the fire caused about $850,000 worth of damage.

Two civilians required medical attention at the scene of the fire. Both were transported to Northwest Hospital; one by county medic; and one asked to be taken by a family member. There were no injuries to any firefighters. Fire Investigators were on the scene, and the fire remains under investigation at this time.
