Baltimore County investigators today were trying to determine the cause of a four-alarm apartment fire in Hillendale that left a volunteer firefighter dead. Two residents of the Towson Crossing complex also were seriously injured in the fire that began Wednesday evening. As arson investigators and other fire officials worked at the scene this morning, the front of the Lutherville Volunteer Fire Company's station was draped in black cloth to honor member Mark Falkenhan. Falkenhan, a 43-year-old husband and father of two, became trapped inside a third-story apartment and later died at St. Joseph Medical Center, Baltimore County Fire Department spokeswoman Elise Armacost said.

One Saturday in the near future, amateur golfer Mike Ford will tee it up for the first time this spring. If all goes according to plan, he will arrive at the course early, stretch, take a few practice swings and, when it's his turn, try to smack one down the middle of the fairway. The only difference is this year, for the first time since 1997, Ford won't be doing it at the Hillendale Country Club. Instead, having recently surrendered his membership, he'll be playing at one of the 120-plus Maryland golf courses open to the public.

Fire, as it did to the mythical phoenix, has reduced the Hillendale Country Club, in Phoenix, to ashes. The reality is that the clubhouse is a shell -- burned-out timbers, twisted steel and blackened brick walls standing grotesquely in dark contrast to the pleasurable moments of innumerable yesterdays.Hillendale, chartered in 1923 just north of the city line, moved to its location beyond the Loch Raven watershed in 1954. It's a facility in the rolling terrain of Baltimore County that has 615 members and is where Bill Clarke, professional emeritus, emerged to become national PGA president and establish a reputation as one of America's foremost authorities on the rules of golf.
