Original release (June 17, 2016  12:18 p.m.):

A 92-year-old woman died Wednesday in a fire in her Lutherville-Timonium home.

Baltimore County Fire units responded at about 10 a.m. to a one-alarm fire in a single-family home in the 1700 block of Lynncrest Road, 21093. Crews brought the small kitchen fire under control within about 15 minutes. Kathleen Margaret Chrismer was found deceased in the kitchen.

This incident remains under investigation by Baltimore County Police Fire Investigators.

A 66-year-old woman died Saturday evening in a one-alarm fire at her Rosedale townhome.

Rosa Mae Mason, of the unit block of King Charles Circle, died at the scene. The victim's son told police he heard her calling from her upstairs bedroom and tried to get her out of the middle-of-group townhouse, but he was unable to do so due to heavy smoke and rapidly spreading fire.

Baltimore County fire crews responded to the King Charles Circle address at about 7 p.m. First-arriving units found heavy smoke showing from the home. Some 17 pieces of equipment fought this fire. Fire personnel brought it under control in about 35 minutes.

The son, 36, who also lived at the King Charles Circle address, was evaluated at the scene but was not transported. One firefighter from White Marsh Volunteer Fire Co. was transported to the MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center with non-lifethreatening injuries.

Baltimore County Police fire investigators have not determined a cause for the fire but have confirmed that it was not deliberately set.
