Photo of fire at apartments on Glen Michael Lane in Randallstown.Baltimore County Fire crews were dispatched to 8511 Glen Michael Lane in Randallstown at 9:51 p.m. last night. Upon arrival, crews found heavy fire coming from a third floor apartment. They immediately requested a working fire assignment and second alarm. 

The fire quickly spread to the common attic area of the building and traveled across to a second, adjoining building. Although crews were able to stop the fire relatively quickly, there was significant damage to both buildings. As a result, 23 units (all in both buildings) were deemed uninhabitable at the time. It is estimated that 50-70 residents were displaced. Baltimore County Fire and Police crews worked with the leasing office and the American Red Cross to find alternative living arrangements for these residents. 

The incident was placed under control at 11:01 p.m. No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Baltimore County Police Department's Fire Investigation Unit.
