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.

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