BALTIMORE--In late June, Carroll County officials voted to require sprinkler systems in new single-family homes starting in 2006, reported the Baltimore Sun.
The area becomes the first county in the Baltimore area to have the requirement and only the third in the entire state. Prince George's County has required sprinklers in all new homes since 1992 and Montgomery County added the requirement last year.
