House burns damage put at $90,000


A house fire in Elkridge Wednesday afternoon caused $90,000 worth of damage, Howard County Fire and Rescue officials said yesterday.

About 3: 37 p.m., fire and rescue officials responded to a call in the 4900 block of Ilchester Road and extinguished a fire in the basement of a single-family rancher, said Lt. Chris Cangemi, a Fire and Rescue spokesman.

No one was hurt in the blaze, but the family's pet Dalmatian was found dead in the basement, Cangemi said.

The state fire marshal's office is investigating the blaze, which fire officials suspect was caused by an electrical problem.
