Shortly before 10 p.m. on Saturday, July 27th, Baltimore County eastside fire units were dispatched to the vacant Seagram's plant in the 7100 block of Sollers Point Road in Dundalk for a reported building fire. This complex has been the site of multiple previous fires. BCoFD Engine 6 (Dundalk station) arrived with heavy fire showing from multiple floors and immediately requested a second alarm. A civilian was reported trapped in the building but jumped from the 3rd floor, they were transported with serious injuries to an area hospital. Firefighters encountered water problems and a collapse of part of the building, command ordered exterior operations. At the height of the fire, three ladder pipes were used to combat the flames and embers that were threatening exposures. Command eventually requested a third alarm assignment, and units from Baltimore City Fire Department responded on mutual aid.
