K9 Bella died in a vehicle fire while being transported to the Western Correctional Institute in Cresaptown, Maryland.

Two handlers were taking Bella and a second canine to the facility when their department vehicle caught fire as they drove along I-68, near 15 Mile Creek, in Flintstone, Maryland. The officers were able to stop the vehicle and free one of the canines but were unable to free Bella as the vehicle became fully engulfed in flames.
