When a fire broke out at a home on Myrtle Avenue in Halethorpe, members of the English Consul Volunteer Fire Department arrived to beat back the blaze. It proved too strong, destroying the structure and sending two firefighters to the hospital. Federal authorities now say that one of the volunteers injured in the September 2007 blaze intentionally set it, one in a string of suspicious fires in the area at the time. Documents filed in U.S. District Court last week lay out the case against Nicholas Hannigan, 27, a deputy chief with the English Consul department who told federal investigators in 2011 that he set the fire by igniting a wheelbarrow full of insulation, prosecutors say. The alleged disclosure came as Hannigan went through a screening to become a Secret Service employee.

Gregory Lawrence said Monday he plans to appeal the Maryland Aviation Administration's decision last week to terminate him from his job as BWI Airport's acting fire chief. Lawrence, the first African-American to lead the airport fire department, initially got his job there after complaining about racial discrimination. He feels his termination may be retaliation for that lawsuit he brought against the department more than a decade ago. "I want my job back," he said during a news conference in the Annapolis offices of his attorney, Alan Legum, where he was flanked by more than a dozen African-American leaders and fire officials from around the region.
