Vent Fan Fire on Lower Gate Court

Owings Mills Volunteer Fire Company responded to the report of a second floor bathroom fire on Lower Gate Ct in Owings Mills shortly before 6:00 PM tonight.

Truck 313 and Engine 312 arrived and entered the townhouse, which was filled with smoke. Engine 19 from Garrison joined us on scene. Our members quickly located the source of the fire, which was a bathroom ventilation fan. The vent fan was extinguished and removed from the ceiling.

Units checked for fire extension in the attic, and came back negative. The area was ventilated via portable fans to remove any remaining smoke.
