Firefighters Battle Blaze At Mattress Warehouse

BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore fire officials say they spent about 90 minutes putting out a three-alarm fire in a brick warehouse that was filled with mattresses.

The fire was reported around 1:30 p.m. Sunday on Harford Avenue near East Madison Street. More than 80 firefighters responded.

Capt. Roman Clark, a fire department spokesman, says the blaze was tough to put out because of all the mattresses inside the building.

The fire was placed under control shortly before 3 p.m. The cause is under investigation, and officials say the building’s owner was on the scene assessing the damage
