Glen Burnie apartment fire ruled accidental

A Glen Burnie apartment fire that drove nine families from their homes Sunday morning was ruled accidental, though the cause of the blaze remains under investigation, county Fire Department spokesman Capt. Gary Sheckells said yesterday.

The two-alarm blaze started in a ground-floor apartment in the Rainbow View complex. Two people were treated for smoke inhalation. All of the families have been relocated or allowed to return to their apartments, but the man in whose apartment the fire started lost nearly everything there, a Red Cross worker said.

Red Cross worker Leslie Fries described him as a "single man getting ready to get married in a month."
