    Default Henryton on fire AGAIN!

    Looks to be much more fatal this time...

    Fire Burns at Abandoned State Hospital in Carroll County
    Created: Wednesday, 19 Dec 2007, 6:32 AM EST

    HENRYTON, Md. (AP) -- Firefighters from three counties are fighting a blaze at a building inside the abandoned Henryton Hospital Center complex in Carroll County.

    The fire was reported about 4:15 a.m. at the complex in the 7900 block of Henryton Road.

    The site is just inside the Carroll County line, near Marriottsville in Howard County.

    Sykesville firefighters say the complex has no electricity and has been the scene of several suspicious fires in recent years.

    The hospital is a former state mental health facility. Firefighters say the fire was found inside the old theater section of the main building and spread to the adjoining area of the building.

    Ha! Damned if you do, damned if you don't! "Go see new places!" "You haven't been here?!?"

    Henryton was/is on my list, but I was trying to aim for stuff a little less newbish, I think... By this point I'll just be happy to get out SOMEWHERE, it's been a while.

    Not missing much babe but it's still kinda neat to see. Of course if asshats keep burning down the buildings one by one there will be nothing to see.

    I actually went there the morning that happened. I had no clue there was a fire there until i got into the main area and saw the smoke. Then I left lol...

    No fire department had shown up yet, so I guess I was lucky to get out before getting blamed for it.

    My mom called me and told me about this this morning because she knows I l've been there and am interesting in the old places. Sucks that people can't just appreciate what it is instead of being so destructive

    Another Fire At Abandoned Henryton Hospital Center
    By Firefighter/EMT Bill Rehkopf
    December 19, 2007


    An early morning fire has heavily damaged the main building at the former Henryton Hospital Center in Marriottsville.

    The blaze was initially reported as an investigation of smoke in the area at approximately 4:15 am. Responding crews discovered the fire at Henryton and immediately upgraded the incident to a box alarm.

    Crews discovered heavy fire in the portion of the main building where the old theater was located. Two tanker task forces and the rapid intervention dispatch were requested, bringing crews from neighboring companies in Carroll, Baltimore and Howard counties. Approximately 75-80 firefighters were reported on the scene by the incident commander.

    It took approximately three and a half hours to bring the fire under control. There were no injuries in the fire.

    The hospital grounds have been the scene of many suspicious fires in recent years, including several in the theater section of the main building. There are no utilities to the building. The cause of this fire has not been determined.

    Sykesville fire officials are urgently requesting state officials to address the dangerous situation at Henryton, preferably by razing the buildings to avoid future fires, or even worse, injuries or deaths.

    Units: Sykesville Engine 124, Ladder 12, Rescue Squad 12, Paramedic 128 (partial list)

    Mutual Aid: Various companies from Baltimore, Carroll and Howard Counties
