Nearly 60 dis­placed by fire at as­sisted-liv­ing fa­cil­ity

Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND -

Nearly 60 res­i­dents were dis­placed from a Sev­erna Park se­nior liv­ing com­plex af­ter a twoalarm fire broke out late Mon­day af­ter­noon, an Anne Arun­del County Fire Depart­ment spokesman said. Fire­fight­ers were called to the KrisLeigh as­sisted liv­ing fa­cil­ity in the 800 block of Ritchie High­way around 4:45 p.m., Lt. Erik Korn­meyer said. As­mall fire was found in a com­mon area of the build­ing, and the four-story build­ing was full of smoke. The fire had been mostly ex­tin­guished by the sprin­kler sys­tem, and it was con­tained within min­utes, Korn­meyer said. No in­juries were re­ported. The fa­cil­ity is ex­pected to be closed for sev­eral days, Korn­meyer said. Kris-Leigh staff was work­ing with the fam­i­lies of the com­plex’s res­i­dents to make ar­range­ments for Mon­day evening and plans to trans­fer res­i­dents whose fam­i­lies can­not as­sist with ar­range­ments to Kris-Leigh’s lo­ca­tions in David­sonville and Gam­brills, Korn­meyer said. The cause is un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion. There was no es­ti­mate of the dam­age as of Mon­day evening.
