Each year for National Arson Awareness Week, the U.S. Fire Administration gathers and shares information to raise awareness of arson and provide individuals with strategies to combat these problems in their community.

This year’s National Arson Awareness Week theme is “Accelerant Detection Canines (ADC) – Sniffing Out Arson.” These canines are motivated helpers that are able to save both time and money in an arson investigation.

An ADC:

  • Has a sense of smell that is 100,000 times more acute than a human’s.
  • Knows how to work a crowd. At a fire scene, the dog is encouraged to mingle with spectators and give them a good sniff. If the arsonist is in the crowd watching, the ADC will alert to the smell of the accelerant on his or her clothes, shoes or body.
  • Is fast, covering an entire scene in less than 30 minutes. It can take humans days to do what a dog does in minutes.
  • Is an excellent addition to any community’s fire prevention and education program. In addition to averaging 90 fires a year, in their off hours, ADC teams head out into their communities to teach fire safety and prevention to kids and adults.

To learn more about the history and training of Accelerant Detection Canines, check out FEMA’s resources at www.usfa.fema.gov/aaw.

At 10:21 a.m. this morning, Baltimore County Police responded to MC-N-MC Towing in the 1000 Block of Leslie Avenue 21228 for a report of a shooting. When they arrived at the scene, officers found an adult male victim suffering from a single gunshot wound to the upper body. He was taken to an area hospital for treatment and is expected to survive.

The initial investigation into this incident has indicated that the victim and the adult male suspect were having an argument at the location. During the argument, the suspect shot the victim once.

The suspect has been taken into custody.

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

Over the next 72 hours, members of the Maryland National Guard will be demobilizing via the Pikesville Armory in the 600 block of Reisterstown Road 21208. Activity will be taking place 24 hours a day and is likely to cause traffic congestion.

Motorists are encouraged to find an alternate route around the area.
