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.
