Just a few minutes after the clock struck midnight Saturday morning, fire stations throughout the Towson area were dispatched for the report of a motel fire. While en-route, units advised they could see flames in the sky just around the corner from Fire Station 1. Engine 101 arrived within minutes of dispatch and reported heavy fire showing. A second alarm was then requested, bringing Jacksonville 's AU478 on the rapid intervention task force. Crews worked to aggressively extinguish the fire and conduct a primary search of other motel rooms. Firefighters discovered a body in the room where the fire initially started.
