Two men were working on a car in the parking lot of the Center Place Apartments on Sunday around 5 p.m. when the vehicle burst into flames. According to a Baltimore County Police spokeswoman, the vehicle had “fuel line issues” and the two men poured gasoline into an injector and started the engine, resulting in a flash fire. Firefighters from Dundalk Station 6 responded and extinguished the blaze. One of the men reportedly suffered minor burns but declined treatment at the scene.

Last week, demolition crews at the former Seagram’s distillery site on Willow Spring Road began tearing down the building damaged in a three-alarm fire on July 27. Developer John Vontran, who owns the property, told The Eagle that he hopes to begin demolition of the remaining buildings on the site in the near future. For video click here.

Annual Trashy Fashion show highlights eco-attire

altaltTen Sparrows Point High School students displayed apparel they designed from recycled materials at this year’s Trashy Fashion Show at Double Tree Inn in Pikesville on Aug. 9. All outfits in the show were produced from at least 85 percent discarded materials that include bingo cards, CDs, coffee filters, bottle caps and other items. First hosted by the school in 2010, the Trashy Fashion Show was established to raise awareness of pollution in the community.
