Shortly before 4 p.m. on Monday, February 13, Baltimore City Fire Department units were dispatched on Box Alarm 14-70 in Southwest Baltimore for a reported building fire in the area of Frederick Avenue & South Calverton Road. BCFD Engine 14 arrived with heavy fire on the third floor of a 3-story 100 x 200 vacant warehouse and a Working Fire Dispatch was requested. Command quickly requested a 2nd Alarm, followed by a 3rd Alarm and requests for additional engine companies as the fire grew in intensity and conditions deteriorated, including collapse of the third floor and roof. Firefighters used multiple handlines, ladder pipes and the BCFD Water Tower in an effort to control the fire, which was finally brought under control shortly before 11 p.m. The building, located at 158 S Calverton Road, is a vacant warehouse, although it is believed that homeless individuals live in the structure.
