UPDATE (December 10):

Baltimore County Police have identified the man that died in the fire on Tricount Court early Tuesday morning as 75-year-old John Clark Johnson. He resided in the apartment in which the fire occurred.

The current conditions of the other people injured as a result of the fire are not known.

This incident remains under investigation by Baltimore County Police Department fire investigators. Investigators believe that there is nothing suspicious about the fire.

Original release (December 9):

An early morning apartment fire in Owings Mills has left one man deceased.

At 2 a.m., the Baltimore County Fire Department responded to the unit block of Tricount Court, 21117, in the Painters Mill Apartments, for a report of an apartment fire. When first-arriving fire personnel arrived on the scene, they found fire showing on the second floor and several people trapped.

Firefighters rescued a man and a woman from an apartment on the second floor. The woman, who firefighters helped walk from the building, was transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Burn Center for treatment of serious injuries. Her current condition is unknown. The injured man was not conscious when firefighters carried from the apartment. He was transported to Northwest Hospital Center, where he later died. Police have not yet identified him.

Two other people drove themselves to Northwest Hospital Center for treatment of non life-threatening injuries. A volunteer firefighter was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Residents of other units were not displaced.

The fire was relatively small and contained to the second floor apartment. It was brought under control at 2:50 a.m. About 15 pieces of fire equipment and 60 firefighters responded to this scene.

This incident remains under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Department fire investigators. Police  do not believe this fire involved criminal activity.

Fire crews expect their work at a stubborn two-alarm fire at Rosedale Roofing to continue into the night.

As of 5 p.m., the fire, dispatched at 1:36 p.m., still had not been brought under control. The fire continues to burn inside the warehouse. Motorists should avoid the area if possible. Fire commanders have dispatched heavy equipment to help them remove a wall and thus avoid a potentially dangerous collapse.

One volunteer firefighter from the Middleborough VFC was transported to a local hospital as a precaution because he was feeling ill..

The first-arriving crews found heavy fire and smoke coming from the warehouse. There were no rescues. Commanders quickly called for a second alarm and moved to a defensive strategy, fighting the fire from the outside. About 30 pieces of equipment and 100 personnel are fighting this fire.

Fire Investigation detectives are on the scene and will handle the investigation. A cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
