Old Mill High damaged by vandals

Vandals caused $2,400 damage to Old Mill High School in Severna Park early Sunday when they broke a front window, county police reported.

Just after 3 a.m., police received a call from the school's front lobby. When officers arrived, they found the window shattered. Police with dogs then tracked two suspects to a nearby 7-Eleven store on Old Mill Road.

The suspects were taken to the Eastern district police station and questioned, but released when their alibis checked out.

No arrests have been made. Police will continue to investigate.

House fire injures owner, kills her dog

A 41-year old Arnold woman was injured and her dog killed Friday night when a two-alarm fire tore through her house in the 900 block of Forked Creek Road.

Capt. Gary Sheckells, a Fire Department spokesman, said on Saturday that fire investigators do not know what started the fire.

They were trying to interview the owner, Ileana Basil, who was treated at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center for smoke inhalation and cuts she sustained while trying to save her dog.

Captain Sheckells said smoke and flames were coming from the roof of the rancher, which sits about 3,000 feet off the road, when firefighters arrived about 8:30 p.m. Ms. Basil was on the side of the house with cuts on her arms and legs.

She told firefighters she ran out of the house when the fire started, then tried to get back in to save the dog.

Captain Sheckells said it took 50 firefighters about an hour and a half to bring the blaze under control. He said the home received extensive damage, but a dollar amount was not available over the weekend.
