Story No. 013121100

Shortly before 11pm on Saturday, January 30, 2021, Baltimore County westside units were alerted for a reported dwelling fire in the 4200 block of Red Haven Road (Fire Box 2-22) in Pikesville.  The home's occupant called 911 reporting she felt heat, heard crackling sounds and saw smoke.  While units were enroute, Baltimore County Fire Dispatch advised updated information that the caller was also reporting flames in the roof.  BCoFD Engine 2 (Pikesville career station) arrived with smoke showing from a 2-story middle of the group townhouse and quickly upgraded to fire showing in the attic and roof, and Battalion Chief 22 (Kemp) requested a Working Fire Dispatch assignment. Firefighters made an aggressive attack, with Pikesville Volunteer Fire Company Tower 323's crew accessing the roof via the truck's bucket, and extinguished fire on the 2nd floor and attic area.  No injuries were reported.
