Brush fire burns 5 acres in Baltimore County


  A brush fire in Baltimore County burned through more than five acres of land and came close to an industrial area in Halethorpe.
   Fire officials say the fire broke out Friday evening. About 120 firefighters were called to the scene from Baltimore County, Baltimore City, Howard and Anne Arundel counties. Strong winds helped spread the fire.
   Officials say swampy conditions in the area made it difficult for fire crews to gain access. At least two units got stuck in the swamp but were able to break free.
   It took crews about two hours to get the fire under control. No injuries were reported.
