A fire that displaced a Rosedale family on Saturday has been deemed “suspicious” by authorities.
Fire crews responded to the blaze in the 2000 block of Kelbourne Road on Saturday afternoon.
Three individuals had to be rescued from the second floor balcony.
The fire quickly spread to a second alarm. The Baltimore County Fire Department was able to bring the fire under control, but multiple apartments suffered enough smoke and water damage to displace their residents. The Red Cross responded to the scene to assist those families in need.
Baltimore County Police Department Arson Investigators also responded to the scene when the preliminary investigation indicated that the fire may have started in the rental office under “suspicious circumstances.”
This incident will continue to be investigated by the Baltimore County Police Arson Unit.
