Police are investigating the death of a cancer patient who was found dead early Saturday in a Bolton Hill dwelling, said Baltimore City Fire Department spokesman Kevin Cartwright. The man's name was being withheld pending notification of relatives, and the cause of death had not yet been determined. Firefighters responding to a private fire alarm system at a house in the 1700 block of Eutaw Place about 5:40 a.m. found a hot interior and a sprinkler system that had been activated after all four burners of a stove and the oven were turned on. Cartwright said the combination of the heat and water created steam that burned the face of the man, who used a wheelchair.

When the potential exists for a real hazard or emergency -- in this case a gas leak -- administrators and teachers need to clear buildings as quickly and safely as possible. The Anne Arundel County school system and EMS/Fire/Rescue department have begun investigating the incident and most likely will offer constructive suggestions to ensure such confusion doesn't recur.When a strange odor was detected near the gymnasium a week ago, Principal Richard Berzinski immediately notified the proper authorities.
