What’s happening on Blythewood Road?
First, developer Arsh Mirmiran of Caves Valley Partners buys the ugliest house on the street for $650,000 and tears it down, presumably to make way for something better.
A nasty oil spill on Thursday morning turned a Baltimore County stream purple and sent authorities scrambling to clean up the mess.
After three months, at least one of the Bell Foundry’s tenants is being let back into the building to resume their work.
Jennifer Aubert-Utz joined the Baltimore County Fire Department nearly 17 years ago as a firefighter/EMT. Since then, she has blazed a trail while climbing the ranks of the department. Recently, Aubert-Utz broke new ground by earning a promotion to become the department’s first-ever assistant fire chief.

Cats and dogs in Baltimore County now stand more of a fighting chance to be rescued from fires thanks to one local company’s donation.
Not long ago, the Baltimore Fire Department was so cash-strapped that they considered selling ad space on the sides of their fire trucks. Clearly, there was no extra money in the budget for fancy gym equipment–even though staying in shape is a crucial part of a firefighter’s job. Luckily, some of our favorite local do-gooders decided to adopt this problem as their own, resulting in new, state-of-the-art gym equipment in the city’s three busiest fire houses.
Alas, there were no controversial PETA babes in sight when a Baltimore County fire station revealed the area’s first fire truck emblazoned with an advertisement. Cash-strapped fire departments around the country have started to turn to local businesses to raise funds.
Perhaps you’ve noticed the particular autumnal smokiness to the air in Baltimore over the past couple of days. Unfortunately for Baltimore, it’s not just the afterglow of fireworks; the city has seen several serious fires break out over the past two weeks. In the past couple of days alone, we’ve seen a car fire on 83 that made post-Super Bowl traffic even worse and a 4-alarm fire at Penn Lumber in West Baltimore. Even more scary: one of the crucial truck companies that helped put out the Penn Lumber fire (and helped resuscitate a victim who “otherwise would surely have died”) just barely escaped being shut down last year.
Baltimore County Wants to Sell You This Fire Station. Or This Elementary School. Maybe a Police Station?
Personally, I’d probably opt for the fire station — you could slide down the fire pole to your heart’s content! Either way, if you’ve long dreamed of owning a piece of municipal Baltimore, now’s your chance: Baltimore County is planning to raise money by selling police and fire stations, as well as an elementary school.
