Anne Arundel County firefighters say the blaze at Seven Oaks was reported Friday morning. Division Chief Keith Swindle says nearly 70 firefighters battled the blaze for three hours.
Ten of the three-story building's 30 units were damaged in the fire. Swindle said the apartments were built in 1988, before sprinklers were required.
