Units are still on the scene of the three-alarm fire at the Owl Corporation in Dundalk, Maryland.

Units have been on the scene all night and continue to pull the debris, paper products, from the warehouse and douse the smoldering areas. The two fire engines on the scene are expected to be there for another 3-4 hours.

The cause and origin are still under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Departments FID unit.

Approximately 50 pieces of apparatus and 130 personnel from Baltimore County, Baltimore City, and Martins Air Force base assisted in placing this fire under control.

No injuries to fire personnel or civilians were reported.

 Tonight at 6:26 PM, Baltimore County Fire Department units were dispatched to 1900 Graves Court, Dundalk, Maryland for a reported building fire at the Owl Corporation, a recycling plant.

Upon arrival, units found heavy fire in the portion of the warehouse that housed bundles of recycled paper. Due to the heavy fire conditions and the structural integrity of the building, firefighters were forced to use exterior operations to control this fire. A second and third alarm were dispatched to help control this fire. At this time fire department units are still on the scene and expect to be for most of the night.

No injuries have been reported and the cause and origin of the fire are under investigation.

Updates will be given as they become available.

Timothy Howard Virts has waived extradition from South Carolina. BCoPD is working with South Carolina authorities on logistics involved with his return; they are uncertain exactly when that will occur.

Virts will be charged upon his return to Maryland with first degree murder in the killing of Bobbie Jo Cortez, found dead Thursday morning in her bedroom in the 3100 block of Ardee Way in Dundalk. Police believe Virts killed Bobbie Jo on Wednesday, some time before 6 p.m. Shortly after 6 a.m. Thursday, police believe, Virts fled with his and Bobbie Jo's 11-year-old daughter, Caitlyn. He and Caitlyn were located Friday evening in a motel in Florence, SC, after a nationwide search.

Homicide detectives flew to South Carolina after Virts' arrest there. Detectives continue to interview Virts, who agreed to talk to them. Details of their conversations are withheld due to the ongoing investigation.

Police continue to explore all aspects of this situation, including Virts' relationships with Bobbie Jo Cortez and their children. (Caitlyn, her twin sister and a 13-year-old brother are believed to have been at the Ardee Way home at the time their mother was killed.)

Caitlyn Virts

Police have been informed by officials at the county's Department of Health and Human Services that Caitlyn returned to Maryland Saturday evening. She was reunited with her siblings, all of whom are in the custody of social services officials.

Caitlyn appears to be unharmed physically. Baltimore County Government will provide all available resources to her and her siblings.

911 Tapes & Arrest Warrant

The 911 tapes for this call are being withheld due to the ongoing investigation.

The arrest warrant charging Timothy Virts with first degree murder is not yet public because it has not been served. Virts will be served with the warrant upon his return to Maryland.
