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

      No kidding I was looking for the location and it is no where to be found. As a journalism major in college, this kind of reporting drives me nuts!

    Reported to be on Madison and Harford in Oldtown.

    What kind of news agency posts a story with no location? Are we to all automatically know this? This website continues to decline. I used to come here several times a day for well reported, updated, correct news. Now it’s a junk site with their “best of” garbage.

    I need a job where I can be uneducated and even if it is publicly posted it is okay. If I am not mistake this is on Madison St. I have seen it many times in my travels to and from work.

    Nice that the story was updated giving more detailed information.
    I don’t intend to attend any of their “fire sales”.
