Fire forces Rosewood Center evacuation

November 26, 2007|By Richard Irwin

About 20 female residents of a building at the Rosewood Center in Owings Mills were displaced last night after a single-alarm fire, apparently intentionally set by a developmentally disabled resident, Baltimore County fire officials said.

No one was injured, and all of the women were evacuated to a nearby building, said Baltimore County Fire Division Chief Michael Robinson.

The fire was reported about 8:45 p.m. after alarms went off, he said. It destroyed the room of the woman who is thought to have started the fire and caused smoke damage elsewhere in the building, he said.

Total damage is estimated at about $100,000.
