Woman who died after rowhouse fire identified

December 17, 2009

Authorities have identified a woman who died Tuesday night after a fire broke out in her rowhouse in the Mill Hill section of Southwest Baltimore. Barbara Green, 48, was the city's 24th fire fatality this year; the city recorded 19 fire deaths during the same period last year, said Chief Kevin Cartwright, a department spokesman. Reported about 8 p.m. in the 2500 block of Dulaney St., the fire was confined to a burning mattress in a second-floor bedroom of an end-of-group dwelling and was quickly extinguished. Cartwright said the cause of the fire remains under investigation. The first three of at least six pieces of apparatus arrived at the scene within three minutes, according to Cartwright. He said that none of the companies at nearby fire stations were affected by rotating closures Tuesday.
