Just before 2pm on Tuesday, September 8, Baltimore City Fire Department Engine 45 was alerted for an automatic fire alarm in a maintenance building at an apartment complex in the 3000 block of Fallstaff Road in Northwest Baltimore. While E45 was responding, BCFD Dispatch upgraded the call to a full fire box. Engine 45 arrived with heavy smoke showing and fire in the roof of a 1-story maintenance building for The Towers. BC4 (Goldberg) had command of the 1-alarm fire. HazMat 3 responded at the request of command because a 250 gallon diesel fuel tank was in the structure. The building housed the sprinkler master controls for 4 apartment buildings in the complex.
