Md. firefighter dies in blaze
Fire officials say a firefighter has died after a blaze in an apartment complex.
Baltimore County Fire Chief John Hohman said late Wednesday that 43-year-old Mark Falkenhan died at a local hospital. Falkenhan was a volunteer firefighter in Lutherville.
Hohman says the four-alarm fire was knocked down and crews were on the second and third floors when a flashover occurred. One firefighter escaped.
The fire broke out about 7 p.m. at the Towson Crossing apartments.
Fire department spokeswoman Elise Armacost says a man and a woman were taken to local hospitals to be treated for burns and smoke inhalation.
