Baltimore Co. Crews Battle 3-Story Condo Fire


Firefighters battled a three-alarm condominium fire in Perry Hall Thursday night.

Flames erupted on Juliet Lane at the Chapel Village condominiums in Baltimore County at about 7:45 p.m.

Crews said they arrived to see flames coming from the three-story garden-style condo complex.

The blaze quickly escalated to three alarms, and firefighters were forced to evacuate the building. It took about half an hour before crews could declare that the fire had been knocked out.

Fire officials said there were 12 units in the building, but it was unclear how many people have been displaced. The Red Cross has been contacted to help the residents.

There was no word on a cause of the fire, and no one was hurt.
