Three-Alarm Baltimore Warehouse Fire Spreads to Neighboring Buildings

8:00 p.m. CBS Baltimore (http://cbsloc.al/1DNEpf7) details that firefighters responded to the corner of Kirk and Curtain avenue around 3:30 Sunday afternoon where a four story vacant warehouse was fully engulfed. On arrival fire crews said flames and large plumes of black smoke were seen coming from the roof.

Embers from the original fire then sparked six additional fires. The majority of the additional fires were at vacant buildings. No injuries were reported from any of the fires. Fire officials say high winds played a factor in the spreading of embers to other vacant buildings.

The cause of the original fire remains under investigation.

All fires have now been placed under control. Fire units remain on scene in Northeast Baltimore monitoring multiple hot spots.
