About 20 female residents of a building at the Rosewood Center in Owings Mills were displaced last night after a single-alarm fire, apparently intentionally set by a developmentally disabled resident, Baltimore County fire officials said. No one was injured, and all of the women were evacuated to a nearby building, said Baltimore County Fire Division Chief Michael Robinson. The fire was reported about 8:45 p.m. after alarms went off, he said. It destroyed the room of the woman who is thought to have started the fire and caused smoke damage elsewhere in the building, he said.

A fire early yesterday destroyed a swath of historic Mount Airy, including seven businesses that residents said had been breathing new life into Main Street. No one was injured in the three-alarm blaze, fire officials said, but at least four occupants of the apartments above the businesses were evacuated. Three brick buildings dating to the 1930s are uninhabitable. One building, renovated just two years ago, collapsed into rubble, one building caved in on itself, leaving only its facade, and a third building sustained heavy water and smoke damage, fire officials said.

A two-alarm fire that destroyed the roof and top floor of an Eldersburg house early yesterday likely was caused by a lightning strike, authorities said. The fire, in the 7100 block of Shalin Drive, occurred after storms moved through the region Saturday night, knocking out power to area residents, said Chief Bruce Fleming of the volunteer Sykesville-Freedom District Fire Department. Fleming said he believes the fire smoldered and grew because no one was home. The fire was reported by state police troopers in the area on a call, he said.
