Baltimore County Fire officials have been notified that kerosene contaminated with gasoline was sold between January 23 and February 5 at the Shell station and Dash-In at 8200 Liberty Rd., 21244. Use of this contaminated kerosene poses an imminent fire risk if used in kerosene-fueled devices, such as space heaters.

Customers who purchased kerosene at this gas station between January 23 and February 5 should not use this product! Use of gasoline in equipment designed for kerosene is known to cause fire and other hazards, fire officials said.

Dash-In's parent company this morning advised customers to return the product to the Shell station at 8200 Liberty Rd.

Dash-In Statement

A statement released today by Dash-In representatives estimates that 46 customers purchased kerosene during this period. Here is text from the Dash In statement:

"We recently learned that the clear kerosene product purchased between Wednesday, January 23 and Tuesday, February 5 at the Dash-In location at 8200 Liberty Rd., Baltimore, MD may be contaminated.

"If you are one of the approximately 46 customers who purchased clear kerosene from the location between Wednesday, January 23 and Tuesday, February 5, do not use the kerosene product or any remaining stored kerosene product as it is a fire hazard.

A 24-year-old man has died of injuries sustained in an early morning dwelling fire in the Windsor Mill area.

BCoFD units were dispatched at 2:15 a.m. to the unit block of Tremaine Court, 21244, where they found fire on the second floor of an end-of-group town home. The one-alarm fire was knocked quickly, by 2:30 a.m.

Firefighters found the victim in the living room as they were conducting overhaul operations. He was evaluated by emergency medical providers and pronounced dead at the scene.

BCoPD fire investigators say the fire originated in the kitchen. The investigation is ongoing.

Baltimore County Police are seeking the public's assistance in identifying two burglars that struck a home in the 5600 block of Green Court in Windsor Mill in the early afternoon on Friday, January 26.

The two suspects triggered the homeowners surveillance camera just before 2 p.m. when they opened a rear door to flee the home with a large sum of personal property, including expensive watches. Police believe they entered the home through an unsecured window. The suspects were also caught moments before the burglary on a neighbors doorbell camera as one suspect rang the doorbell to see if anyone would answer, then tried to open the door without success.

The two suspects are described as thin young black males, one wearing a dark gray "Fila" hooded sweatshirt and light gray sweatpants, with a thin mustache and goatee as depicted above.

Anyone with information on these suspects or this crime is asked to contact police at 410-307-2020. This incident continues to be investigated by the Baltimore County Burglary Unit.
