Firefighters responded to a call for a dwelling fire in the 8000 block of Mid Haven Road at about 8:30 p.m. July 7, according to Baltimore County Public Safety spokeswoman Louise Rogers-Feher.

Upon arrival, there was no evidence of a fire, but firefighters said they soon saw smoke inside the house and then reported seeing fire on the second floor.

    I guess the heavy fire is predictable when you break all the windows before the handline is in place.

    Why would you let those ladders stay in the fire like that?

      You would think they would avoid putting egress ladders to the fire room. Only two ground ladders are seen in the video and both are to the fire room, not to mention the damage they are causing to the ladders.

    Seems like it would take longer to set up the stick than to stretch a hand line, but there it is. And did the engine that took the rear not lay a line?

    probably didn’t lay in at all. baltimore county doesn’t.

    Crews on this fire did a excellent job despite the house being cluttered halfway to the ceiling with junk in every room. First in engine called nothing showing and then reported light smoke from the bravo charlie corner. The OV guy placed those ladders early on before The fire room was vented and if it wasnt for the truck getting the roof open early crews would of taken a beating while they were making there way down the cluttered hallway to the fire room.
