One person suffered critical injuries yesterday in a two-alarm fire at a Rosedale auto body shop.

BCoFD crews were dispatched at 3:58 p.m. to the 7300 block of Philadelphia Road, 21237, for a commercial building fire. First-arriving units reported heavy smoke and fire and quickly called for a second alarm.

Firefighters were alerted to a victim inside the building. They located him and helped guide him out of the burning structure; he was treated by EMS crews and transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, where he remains hospitalized. 

This was a stubborn fire due partly to flammable materials inside the auto shop. Commanders called it under control at 5:06 p.m. 

An investigation by Baltimore County Police fire investigators is ongoing.
