The first fire-related death in Anne Arundel County occurred when a man died in the Maryland City area on Jan. 2.
Steven Bradley Herman Sr. was positively identified as the person who died after a fire in a mobile home in Maryland City nearly two weeks ago, according to an announcement from the Anne Arundel County Fire Department on Tuesday. Firefighters were dispatched on Jan. 2 to a fire in the unit block of Zona Road in the Parkway Village Mobile Home Park after neighbors observed smoke coming from the home, according to a press release from the fire department. Herman reportedly suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. Although the cause of the fire is still under investigation, a fire department press release confirms the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner determined the cause of death to be fire-related.
