PLANT FIRE CAUSES $1 million damage

A fire at a Glen Burnie cosmetics packaging plant yesterday caused $1 million in damages to a printing press used to publish scented magazine ads and free lipstick samples.

The fire at Alford Packaging Inc., in the 7600 block of Energy Parkway, started shortly before 7 a.m. in a part of the press used to spray sealant, fire department spokesman Lt. Gary Sheckells said. The fires spread through ductwork to the roof of the building.

Because chemicals are stored at the plant, firefighters arriving on the scene called two extra alarms. A total of 63 firefighters battled the fire; it was brought under control by 7:53 a.m., Sheckells said.

Damages were estimated at $1 million to the printing press and $25,000 to the roof.

There were no injuries and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.

SEVEN HOSPITALIZED after apartment fire

Seven people were hospitalized after an early Saturday morning blaze in a Glen Burnie apartment complex.

The seven injured residents were taken to North Arundel Hospital and South Baltimore Hospital, Sheckells said. Their condition was not known yesterday.

Firefighters pulled the seven out of second-floor windows, said Lt.

Howard Hodges of the Ferndale Volunteer Fire Company.

"It was so smoky and the heat had just melted the doors," he said. "We had to put a small child and three adults out a second-floor window. It was so bad that we had to give them our oxygen masks."

In one second-floor apartment, Hodges said, firefighters found three adults in a bedroom with towels wrapped over their faces.

Sheckells said the first-floor apartment was destroyed. Damage was estimated at $150,000 to the building and $15,000 to its contents.
