Baltimore County Police have charged two juveniles in connection with a three-alarm apartment fire yesterday.

Just after 5 p.m., Baltimore County Fire and Police personnel responded to the Millbrook Park Apartments in the 6900 block of Millbrook Park Drive 21215 for an apartment fire. When Engine 2 (Pikesville Station) arrived on the scene, they observed a large pile of the trash to the rear of an apartment building on fire and the fire was spreading into the building.

The fire quickly spread to three apartment buildings, reaching three alarms within 20 minutes of firefighters first arriving on the scene. Approximately 30 pieces of Baltimore County Fire Department Equipment were assigned to the fire, which was brought under control at 6:25 p.m.

There were no reports of injuries as a result of the fire. Residents in three apartment buildings were displaced and 28 apartments sustained water damage. The damage is estimated at $500,000.

Detectives with the Baltimore County Police Arson Unit responded to the scene and determined that the fire had been deliberately set in a pile of trash and mattresses to the rear of one of the buildings.

Police were able to identify a 12-year-old male and 11-year-old male as the persons responsible for starting the fire. Both juveniles have been charged as juveniles in connection with this incident. Due to legal restrictions, no further information can be released about the juveniles.

This incident remains under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Arson Unit.
