At 9:18 p.m. last night, Baltimore County Fire Department personnel responded to the 100 block of Caraway Road 21136 (Preserve at Owings Mills apartments) for a report of a fire. When firefighters first arrived on the scene, they noticed heavy fire showing and called for a second alarm.

Firefighters rescued seven people and a dog from the second and third floors of the building. There was a total of 10 patients; four of which were transported to area hospitals for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. No firefighters were injured while fighting the fire.

The fire was brought under control at 9:51 p.m.

Fire investigators determined that the fire was accidental: caused by a candle that had fallen over in a second floor apartment. Approximately 12 apartments were damaged. Investigators are estimating the damages to be $200,000 to the building and $75,000 to the contents of the building.

Approximately 39 pieces of Baltimore County Fire Department equipment and 75 firefighters were assigned to the call.
