Woman, 59, dies in Dundalk apartment fire
A 59-year-old woman died in a one-alarm, New Year’s Day apartment fire in Dundalk.
Lillian L yman Lindeman, of the 2800 block of Dunlawn Ct., was pronounced deceased at the scene by BCoFD EMS personnel after repeated attempts to revive her were unsuccessful.
Engine 7 (Essex) and other east side crews were dispatched at 9:40 p.m. after another resident of the apartment building reported smoke in his unit. Firefighters found the victim’s apartment filled with smoke and located the victim — who was unresponsive — in the living room. EMS crews immediately began advanced life support care.
The resident who reported the fire was transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center with non life-threatening injuries.
BCoFD fire investigators determined that the fire began when smoking materials ignited combustible items. The fire and smoke damage mainly was limited to the apartment of origin.
