During the Howard Street Tunnel fire, firefighters from the city and Baltimore County had to exchange radios to talk to one another as they battled the underground inferno. After a tanker truck flipped off an Interstate 95 overpass last year and exploded, some emergency officials used cell phones to get instructions.

A bank robbery suspect who was shot at by a Baltimore County police officer was taken into custody yesterday after a three-hour standoff at a Northeast Baltimore apartment complex. The incident began about 11 a.m. yesterday when a man entered the Bank of America branch in the 6700 block of York Road in Rodgers Forge and demanded money from a teller, said Cpl. Vickie Warehime, a county police spokeswoman. Warehime said the man fled with an undisclosed amount of money and apparently got into a waiting blue van that was being driven by another man.
