A five-alarm fire destroyed a boat storage and repair shop in Anne Arundel County yesterday. The fire at Lilly Sport Boats, in the first block of Central Ave. West near Steuart Corner in Edgewater destroyed a boat worth at least a $500,000 and damaged others. The blaze, which was reported about 2 p.m., might have been caused by a transformer on a nearby telephone poll that exploded and threw a combustible fluid onto the roof of the storage facility. "I heard a loud popping sound, walked outside and saw that the transformer had blown," said Jimmy Babel, who owns a landscaping business next door.

Neighbors are raising fire safety concerns about the newest housing development proposed for Baltimore's Canton waterfront -- 80 apartments that would be built above a boat storage and repair facility.Developer Selvin Passen maintains that the project would be "the safest building in Baltimore."Baltimore's Fire Department and Planning Commission haven't ruled on the final design, and construction can't begin until they do.Lighthouse Landing at Lighthouse Point is an $8 million to $9 million development that is drawing questions from residents of the Canton Cove condominiums at 2901 Boston St.What makes Lighthouse Landing different from other area developments is that the 80 apartments would be constructed on top of the 50-foot-high "boatel" at 2701 Boston St.Plans by Levin Brown & Associates call for three levels of residences above the boatel, which is designed to provide storage and repair space for up to 200 pleasure boats.

A review panel will make a recommendation to Baltimore's housing director in the next two weeks that will affect the fate of a disputed apartment complex under construction on the waterfront in Canton. The panel could advise housing chief M. J. "Jay" Brodie to allow the Lighthouse Landing project to continue, ask him to stop construction or push him to appoint an outside body to review the case. The Housing Authority of Baltimore panel's decision will be based largely on testimony from an appeal hearing on Monday forced by opponents of the three-story, 80-unit complex being built atop a 50-foot boat storage facility in the 2700 block of Boston St. Dennis Taylor, the housing official heading the five-person panel, said he planned to have a recommendation to Brodie in two weeks.
