The fire yesterday caused hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage and placed the airport's future in jeopardy.The official cause of the fire remains unknown, but sources said it may have been due to an electrical malfunction. Aviation fuel, oil and grease fed the flames. Arson investigators were to return to the scene today in an effort to pinpoint the cause.

Northrop Grumman Corp. is expanding ship-based radar systems and manufacturing new land-based radar types, both of which will mean more business for the company's largest sector, Electronic Systems of Linthicum.

Carroll commissioners learned yesterday that they will have to rebid and limit the scope of a long-awaited project that would extend water lines to Maple Crest, a 30-year-old subdivision south of Westminster that has suffered water shortages for several years.

In the past two years, Carroll County has collected more than $750,000 in payments from the private companies that lease corporate hangars at the Carroll County Regional Airport, local authorities said. It's a revenue source that county officials hope will grow as the airport's planned multimillion-dollar runway expansion is completed in the coming years. But only two of the leases on Carroll's seven corporate hangars call for the tenants to pay the county and state property taxes owed on the commercial aircraft shelters, county Comptroller Robert M. Burk told the commissioners on Thursday.

Gaithersburg -- The pole-to-pole flight of Maryland aviator Gus McLeod has been indefinitely postponed by a strange contaminant that clogged his single-engine plane's fuel line and launched a whodunit mystery. Three weeks after collapsed landing gear forced McLeod to delay his solo attempt to circumnavigate the globe, polluted fuel has grounded McLeod with a botched itinerary and a quart of suspicious yellow liquid. He said he drained about a quart of it from his fuel tanks after aborting a test flight to Smith Mountain Lake, Va., last week.

The Westminster Common Council is weighing an ordinance that would permit aircraft hangars on county-owned property that falls within city limits - a move that could increase the city's tax base in allowing for the development of additional hangars. Airport hangars are not among the types of buildings allowed in the restricted industrial zone that applies to the Westminster areas around the 26-year-old Carroll County Regional Airport. The city's zoning provision allows for the "manufacture and assembly of aircraft" but not for the storage and repair of the planes, said Gary Horst, who supervises the airport as administrator of the county's Office of Performance Auditing and Special Projects.

Increased fuel sales and fully leased corporate hangars could finally lead to a profit for the Carroll County Regional Airport, a persistent money loser for the county.

In addition, the county has leased all seven of its new corporate hangars, which cost $4 million to build. The county expects to earn $420,000 annually from the hangar leases.

A year ago, none of the seven corporate hangars at Carroll County Regional Airport had permanent tenants. Today, the county-owned airport has secured long-term leases for five hangars and is negotiating agreements for the remaining two.
