Firefighters Battle Blaze At Former Brewery

BALTIMORE (AP) — Firefighters are battling a two-alarm fire on the third and fourth floors of a vacant building in Brewer’s Hill in Southeast Baltimore.

Fire Department spokesman Capt. Roman Clark says the blaze broke out about 2 p.m. Thursday in part of the complex where National Bohemian beer was once brewed.

Clark says firefighters found heavy fire and smoke upon arrival.

All firefighters were evacuated because of an interior collapse. Two firefighters were treated for heat exhaustion.

    sounds like an insurance burn to me, but just my opinion

  • Tgarb

    Yeah, businesses that are doing well set their buildings on fire and then reopen them as soon as possible all the time ? No, not really

  • hboog

    Plus it was an abandoned building, where’s the profit in that?

    • baltimore resident

      not abandon was in process of tear down burn and use insurance to pay for it so no cost to owner DUH

    The two firefighters that were treated for heat exhaustion….did the treatment and recovery include some ice-cold beer… -I’m just asking.
