 A two-alarm fire that began just before midnight last night heavily damaged the Jeppi Nut & Candy Company in Lutherville.

Baltimore County fire crews were dispatched at 11:58 p.m. Tuesday to the unit block of W. Aylesbury Rd., 21093, where firefighters reported smoke showing from the one-story warehouse. The fire escalated to two alarms and caused heavy damage to the Jeppi building.

Adjacent structures suffered water damage.

No one was inside the building at the time of the fire, and no injuries were reported.

Baltimore County Police fire investigators have not determined a cause at this time. The fire remains under investigation.

Brian Keith Wallen, 52, is a presumed suicide, though the Office of the State Medical Examiner has not yet ruled on the cause and manner of death. Investigators do not suspect foul play.

Wallen, of the 500 block of Wyngate Road, was reported missing on April 28, 2016. Police at the time found a suicide note at his home, and they found his silver Jeep near the intersection of Old Bosley and Dulaney Valley roads. An extensive search by BCoPD revealed no trace of Wallen, however.

Wallen was wanted on a Federal Criminal Complaint filed by the U.S. Attorney for Maryland alleging his involvement in a mail fraud scheme.

His body was found at least a mile from where police had found his vehicle almost a year ago, in a heavily wooded area east of Dulaney Valley Road, about a half-mile from the Villa Maria School.
