Baltimore city fire officials are investigating the cause of a fire that started on the roof of a rowhouse in Pigtown
Fire officials responded to a call about a fire at 1169 Sargeant Street at 4:21 p.m., said Fire Captain Roman Clark. When officers arrived smoke was billowing from the roof and the occupants had evacuated. The fire had spread to the two neighboring homes as well, Clark said.
The fire was extinguished quickly but extra time was needed for cleanup because more water than typical was used to extinguish the fire, Clark said. No injuries were reported.
