DUNDALK, Md. (AP) Some Baltimore County firefighters had to battle a blaze in their own firehouse in Dundalk overnight. A department spokesman says firefighters at the station on Sollers Point Road were alerted by smoke detectors and found the fire in the engine bay around 2:30 a.m. today.

BALTIMORE (AP) The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for much of the Baltimore area and north-central Maryland as the Mid-Atlantic region is hit by its second big snowstorm in a week.

O'Malley says the state is facing the challenge of a dwindling supply of salt in some areas and no room to put any more snow beside roads.
