January 30, 1998|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

One man died in a single-dwelling fire yesterday morning, Baltimore County fire officials said.

The blaze, which was reported in a midblock rowhouse in the 8300 block of Hillendale Road shortly before noon, was brought under control within 20 minutes, said Baltimore County Fire Department Battalion Chief Mark Hubbard.

The man, whose name had not been released by authorities as of yesterday evening, was found inside the front door by firefighters when they entered the house, Hubbard said.

"The fire is still under investigation," Hubbard said. "It appears to have started in an upstairs bedroom."

No one else was home or hurt in the blaze.
