The Avenue News - - Police Blotter -

A 66-year-old wo­man died Satur­day evening, May 21, in a onealarm fire at her Rosedale town­home, said the Bal­ti­more County Po­lice Depart­ment.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, Rosa Mae Ma­son, of the unit block of King Charles Cir­cle, died at the scene. The vic­tim’s son told po­lice he heard her call­ing from her up­stairs bed­room and tried to get her out of the mid­dle-of-group townhouse, but he was un­able to do so due to heavy smoke and rapidly spread­ing fire.

Bal­ti­more County fire crews re­sponded to the King Charles Cir­cle ad­dress at about 7 p.m. First-ar­riv­ing units found heavy smoke show­ing from the home, po­lice said.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, about 17 pieces of equip­ment were used to fight the fire. Fire per­son­nel brought it un­der con­trol in about 35 min­utes.

The son, 36, who also lived at the King Charles Cir­cle ad­dress, was eval­u­ated at the scene but was not trans­ported, po­lice said. One firefighter from White Marsh Vol­un­teer Fire Co. was trans­ported to the MedS­tar Franklin Square Med­i­cal Cen­ter with non­lifethreat­en­ing in­juries.

Bal­ti­more County Po­lice fire in­ves­ti­ga­tors have not de­ter­mined a cause for the fire but have con­firmed that it was not de­lib­er­ately set.
