After 53 years of fund raising for the Clarksville volunteer fire department, its Ladies Auxiliary has come to this: Members say the men in the department took control of their events, took over their bank account and chastised them for buying food baskets for the needy - even though fire officials later spent more than $300 on Orioles tickets. But the Ladies are fighting back: They're leaving. No more country breakfasts, no more craft shows, no more flea markets - at least not for the benefit of the Clarksville fire department.

Capt. Glenn C. Resnick of the Pikesville Volunteer Fire Company flips open a small suitcase with the thermal-imaging camera inside. The bitter scent of a burning building rises from it, testimony to the camera's frequent use."This is the difference between life and death right here," he says. "We feel it's revolutionary."What he's holding hardly looks revolutionary -- it could almost be mistaken for a household flashlight -- but Resnick and his company say it's changing the way they fight fires.
