BREAKING: Fire causes heavy damage at Ross’ Crab House
Sunday, 02 September 2012 21:42

A two-alarm fire at Ross’ Crab House on North Point Road spread to three floors of the building and caused heavy damage but no injuries, according to the Baltimore County Fire Department.
    The fire apparently began in the building’s basement and was discovered by employees at about 7:25 p.m. Fire officials described the blaze as “contained” by 9 p.m.
    No damage to nearby buildings was reported, and one Wise Avenue volunteer firefighter was transported to a local emergency room for what a county Twitter message described as a high-blood-pressure-related condition.
    The more than one dozen pieces of firefighting equipment that were called to the scene caused the closure of long stretches of North Point Road and Merritt Boulevard.
