A few chickens and a goat wander into view. "The animals are all quite tame," said Van Allen, who is on the board of the Arabber Preservation Society.

"It was late in the spring of 1923 and the very popular Anne Arundel County strawberries were running very late. It seemed like the rain would never stop and the sand was being splashed up onto the waiting berries. "Finally, the sun — greeted with mixed emotions — came out in all its glory and beat down on the Maryland hillside. Mixed emotions because now, acres and acres of strawberries would ripen suddenly, needing to be picked, packed, and shipped to Baltimore quickly or the entire spring cash crop would be lost … perhaps a call to a Baltimore agent would yield some help.

IN A HOUSE without electricity, a candle tips over, and two boys die. Davon Dortch, 11, and his brother Fidel Russel, 7, weren't responsible for the power bill, but they paid the price when it went into arrears. Their deaths continue a grisly tradition.

In 1982, 10 people - seven children - died and three were injured in a Northeast Baltimore rowhouse blaze.
