Last night around 2245hrs, Squad 483 was alerted for a dwelling fire w/ people trapped in the 7000 blk of Beech Ave. (Box 8-03). First arriving units had heavy fire showing from a 2.5 story dwelling and confirmed there was someone trapped inside and someone trapped on the roof, who was quickly rescued by units on scene. The squad arrived and the members threw ladders and immediately assisted w/ a search of the dwelling. Two members from the squad assisted with removing 1 trapped occupant, who was located unconscious on the second floor. After rescue operations were complete the crew assisted with a continued search (all other searches proved negative), extinguishing the fire & checking for extension. The squad operated on the scene for about 3 hours before going in service.
This was the second fire in the Overlea area of the night, units from the BCoFD were on a working fire in the 7500 blk of Belair Rd when this incident was dispatched.
While the squad was on this fire the 48 house was attended with a second crew.

Way to go guys and gals.
What does it mean to say they were "on a working fire" when the other incident was dispatched? Does "working fire" mean intentional (like a practice fire) or just that it was an already existing emergency that was underway when the other incident occurred? Just curious.
Incredible night! Thank God for our brave firemen !
Oops! Yes! I stand corrected! Thanks!

I think the crews rescued at least 3 people from the 2nd and 3rd floors. Job well done.

Engine 481 just returned from this dwelling fire in the 200 blk of Kearney Dr (Joppa Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company Box 818). Engine 481 arrived 2nd, stretched a backup line and assisted with opening up and extinguishing the fire which was located on the first floor and in the attic. 481 operated on the scene for an hour and a half before going in service.
While the engine was out the station was attended with a second crew. ... See MoreSee Less

Don't feel sorry for the female resident of this home....She set the fires! She tried to ruin a perfectly good home....And could have hurt her dogs who were the innocent parties in all this....

The meeting will be held by the Kingsville Civic Association and all who have questions, comments or concerns are encouraged to attend. ... See MoreSee Less
Wow, that's some big changes
I like it! Especially now that I have a 16 year old getting her license soon. Seems much safer and that is always a plus!

So the proposal it appears is to add another red light up further on that blind spot on SN Belair Road and putting extra traffics on Jerusalem Road which is a small road....scary!
I think they should get rid of the triangle and make a round about! It would also slow people down which is also desperately needed on brl air rd!
Yeah that's a damned mess there
I think it looks pretty smart. Not sure how I would fix it but something has to be changed. It's dangerous and a lot of traffic moving to the belair area.
I think it would make more sense to take the land from the triangle park to make a 3rd lane NB on RT 1, and build a dedicated left turn lane onto Sunshine.
Something really needs to be done - my car got totaled at Jerusalem and Bradshaw - its a very dangerous intersection! And a hot mess during peak traffic times.
Monica doesn't Jim still cut the lot at that intersection?

And these proposed changes are an improvement ?!? Two traffic lights (versus one), six intersections (versus three) and additional stop/yield/one-way signs are anything but an improvement! These proposed changes will put even more traffic onto Jerusalem Road... For starters, take the triangle of bare land at the three existing intersections and find a better way to utilize it (eg. add a right lane to NB Belair Road, add a lane for left turning traffic from Bradshaw Road onto SB Belair Road and stop two way traffic in front of G&M... make it one way (with two lanes) EB onto Jersualem Road with the right lane reserved for a right turn only onto Bradshaw Road). The current daily mess at Jerrusalem and Bradshaw Rds resulted when NB traffic on Belair Road was stopped from making left hand turns onto Sunshine Ave. By adding a lane NB on Belair Road, the left turn from Belair Road onto Sunshine Ave could happen again with a green arrow just as it is now for SB traffic on Belair Road turning left onto Bradshaw Road... The county/state should capture the SW corner of G&M's property at the intersection of Jerusalem and Bradshaw to facilitate traffic turning right onto Bradshaw Road from Jerusalem Road after exiting Belair Road... And the county/state should capture the NW corner of Shabby Button's property at the intersection of Sunshine and Belair to facilitate traffic turning right onto Belair Road from Sunshine Ave...

I can't tell what's happening!
This meeting hasn't been publicized much.
Seems like a hot mess all around. Can't tell what the changes are!

How is this going to happen without disturbing the cemetery at St. John's. Also, my kids attend St. Paul's and this proposed traffic change concerns me. I agree that intersection is a mess. I make a left out of St. Paul's and travel out of my way a few minutes to Joppa RD just to avoid it everyday but I don't see how this change will help. Maybe a circle... but this proposal is an even larger mess

We have been "almost" hit so many times as we make the left from Sunshine Avenue to northbound Belair Road because of the traffic coming from Bradshaw Road making a right on red onto northbound Belair Road. There used to be a no right on red sign there at Bradshaw Road but it disappeared.
4/15/17 Around 2330 hours, while Engine 482 was handling a call in the first due, Engine 481 was alerted for a dwelling fire with rescue in the 1000 blk of Crimson Tree Ct. (Joppa Magnolia VFC - Fort Hanson box 826). Chief 8 arrived first with smoke showing from the rear of the dwelling. Engine 481 arrived and assisted units with opening up and conducting a search. They cleared after about an hour and are currently transferred to JMVFC house 1. Engine 482 is staffed back in station. ... See MoreSee Less
