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.

A 32-year-old Baltimore man has been charged in the June 20 stabbing death of his pregnant girlfriend in her Rosedale home.

Kenneth Walter Worrell III of the 5800 block of Lillyan Avenue, 21206, has been charged with first-degree murder and is held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.

The victim, Summer Shemida Smith, 33, of the unit block of Travis Court, 21237, was nine months pregnant when she was killed. The Baltimore County State's Attorney will review this case to see if additional homicide charges are warranted for the death of the unborn child.

The victim was found by her mother, bloody and unconscious, in the basement of the Travis Court home at about 7:30 p.m. on June 20; Smith was pronounced dead at the scene by BCoFD EMS personnel. An autopsy by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner found that Smith suffered multiple injuries, including puncture wounds.

Detectives were able to link Worrell to the crime when DNA tests showed that blood stains on a bank receipt found in Worrell's car and dated the day of the murder belonged to Smith.
