February 01, 2000|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Baltimore County fire officials are trying to determine the cause of a blaze that caused an estimated $40,000 in damage to a Dundalk rowhouse yesterday afternoon.

One of three children in the house in the 8000 block of Grayhaven Road saw flames in the living room about noon, said Battalion Chief Mark Hubbard. All three children left on their own.

Three other children and the adult supervising them were outside. The children, said Hubbard, were between ages 5 and 11 and were not all related. Firefighters took 20 minutes to control the fire, which destroyed the living room and caused extensive smoke damage, Hubbard said.

No injuries were reported.

The house had working smoke detectors, Hubbard said.
