A woman who was found dead after an apartment fire Saturday in Reisterstown has been identified as Rose Lea Salzman, 67. Baltimore County police released her identity Monday morning, noting that Salzman had worked for 31 years as a crossing guard at Timber Grove Elementary School in Owings Mills. Fire investigators determined that the two-alarm blaze in the 100 block of Ewing Drive was accidental and had been caused by combustible materials left on top of a stove. They estimated the damage to the building at $250,000. Salzman was found Saturday afternoon during a search of the second floor of the building, which housed four apartments, said Baltimore County Fire Director Kyrle Preis III.
