Pikesville, MD - Just before 7:00 P.M. on Saturday, June 27th, Baltimore County westside units were alerted for a reported fire in the garage of a house in the 7900 block of Ivy Lane (Fire Box 2-12) in Pikesville.

First-arriving Baltimore County FD Engine 2 laid a hoseline at a nearby hydrant and arrived with smoke showing from the eaves of a semi-attached garage and the main one-story single-family house, while Pikesville Vol. Fire Co. Engine 321 picked up E2's hoseline to provide water supply. Firefighters found a fire in the ceiling of the garage, with some extension into the roof area; PVFC Tower 323's crew determined that the fire had not extended into the main house and assisted with opening up the garage door and ceiling.

Crews from Engine 321 and BCoFD Engines 18 and 19 extinguished the fire, opened up the 'Delta' side and ventilated the structures, with BCoFD Engine 14 standing by as the Rapid Intervention Team. No injuries were reported.
