An unidentified man died in the third-floor dormer of a vacant rowhouse at 25 S. Exeter St. during a two-alarm fire early yesterday. Baltimore Fire Department Battalion Chief Hector Torres said two people were seen leaving the small house as the fire was reported at 6:35 a.m. By the time firefighters arrived, the house was in flames, Torres said. The fire burned through the roofs of the adjoining homes on either side. The homes stand across Exeter Street from the now-vacant Flag House public housing projects, which are scheduled for demolition.

The area around Exeter Street is a happenin' place to be these days. What with new office buildings and residences sprouting up, businesses like Bin 604 Wine Sellers and Whole Foods Market have found a ready and waiting clientele. And what hip locale doesn't come with its own sushi joint? Enter -- this week, in fact -- Chiu's Sushi Japanese Restaurant. Right next door to the aforementioned wine shop on Exeter Street in the Inner Harbor east. Chiu's may be the new kid on the block, but its owner has been around it a few times.

If you think all made-for-TV movies end in simplistic, upbeat, candy-cane conclusions, watch "Murder Without Motive: The Edmund Perry Story" at 9 tonight on WMAR-TV (Channel 2). The docudrama about the 1985 shooting death of a young, African-American scholar from Harlem goes out of its way to see the tragedy from several points of view, and it is willing to end without any neat resolution.As a teen-ager, Perry received a scholarship to the Phillips Exeter Academy, one of the nation's most prestigious prep schools.

The death of Edmund Perry is a tragedy at once uniquely American and undeniably universal.It is the story of the strong pulls of loyalties, the constant battle between finding your identity as a member of a group or as an individual, all filtered through the peculiar lens of the black experience in America.Perry was a promising junior high student in Harlem, chosen -- as his brother had been before him -- for a program that sent kids with such potential and drive to elite prep schools.He went to the most elite of the elite, Phillips Exeter in New Hampshire, encountering people who came from a world of established white wealth, a place he had stereotyped as much in his mind as they had stereotyped Harlem in theirs.

EXETER, N.H. - Financier Carl C. Icahn got clearance July 1 to exercise an option to buy at least $50 million in securities or assets of Tyco International Ltd., according to a U.S. Federal Trade Commission document that became public yesterday. Icahn isn't obligated to purchase Tyco shares or assets, and the document doesn't show if he has. The FTC must be notified of intent to do so if the transaction would include assets with voting rights that have a value of more than $50 million.

EXETER, N.H. - Tyco International Ltd., bowing to shareholder demands for greater transparency in accounting, said yesterday that it plans to split into four companies and shed $11 billion in debt. "It's absolutely surprising," said Mark Demos, an analyst with Fifth Third Investment Advisors, which owns Tyco shares. "It goes against the grain of Tyco's message over the past decade." The breakup reverses the strategy of Tyco chief executive L. Dennis Kozlowski, who oversaw $64 billion in acquisitions and whose methods were compared to those at General Electric Co. Kozlowski will head the electronics and security-systems company that remains after Tyco spins off its health care, fire protection and flow control, and financial services units.
