Two Frostburg State University students, including a young woman from Annapolis who would have celebrated her 20th birthday today, were killed in an early-morning apartment fire on Main Street. Alyssa Salazar and Evan Kullberg apparently were trapped in a second-floor rear apartment in the two-story building that housed Malino's Pizza, according to Deputy Fire Marshal Bruce D. Bouch. The cause of the fire, which was reported about 4 a.m., is under investigation. Salazar was a 2008 graduate of Broadneck High School, according to a spokeswoman for Anne Arundel County schools.

A two-alarm building fire in Baltimore's Penn-Fallsway neighborhood billowed smoke high into the sky but was controlled in a matter of minutes by city firefighters Monday night, officials said. Firefighters were called at 7:22 p.m. to the building at the corner of North Gay and High streets. The fire was downgraded from two alarms in six minutes, and was under control in less than a half hour, fire department spokesman Ian Brennan said. No one was injured. The official cause is under investigation, but Steve Tsamouras, who owns the building, said he had been torching a new rubber roof earlier in the day. When he finished, he said, he went to his home a few blocks away and then got a call about the fire.
