It was just after noon on a recent weekday, the parking lots at the Annapolis Westfield Mall were already full, and a woman in a dark sedan weaved through the swelling traffic, looking for a place to park. Jessica Lawrence, a Glen Burnie resident, saw what she was looking for — a single, empty handicapped space near the front entrance to Sears. She pulled in, killed the engine and breathed an apparent sigh of relief. Then Cpl. Mark Camm appeared on the scene. "May I see your ID?"

Anne Arundel County firefighters battled merging brush fires Friday afternoon in Glen Burnie that stretched for a mile. Division Chief Michael Cox said at about 3:30 p.m. that the blaze near Route 100 between Interstate 97 and Route 170 was contained. He said it appeared that no one had been injured and that the blaze touched no buildings but may have reached a construction site. The fire may have started as a number of small spot fires and spread, he said. Valerie Burnette Edgar, spokeswoman for the State Highway Administration, said that at about 6:30 p.m. the right lane of westbound Route 100 remained closed due to the fire, but the other westbound lanes were open.
