BALTIMORE (WJZ)–  Firefighters are battling a blaze in downtown Baltimore. 

At 12:45 a.m., Baltimore City firefighters were dispatched to N. Calvert and Read Streets for a report of a building fire.

Companies arrived to find a three-story brick end of the group commercial building with heavy fire conditions on the first, second and third floors.

Heavy fire on all floors created unsafe conditions. The incident commander ordered an immediate evacuation of the building.

An initial assessment was the first floor consisted of offices and the second and third floors were used as apartments.

No one was hurt in the fire.
