A heavy fire spread through two Parkville homes early Thursday morning. The Baltimore County Fire Department says the fire began early Thursday morning in the basement of a row home in the 1500 block of Clearwood Rd. The fire quickly spread to the home next door. Crews initially began attacking the fire from inside but had to pull out as the first floor was weakening.
The fire was almost under control by 5:30 a.m. No injuries were reported and everyone inside was able to escape safely.
