Two-alarm fire breaks out in vacant house in West Baltimore

A two-alarm fire broke out in a vacant rowhome in West Baltimore early Friday morning, though no one was reported to be injured.

Baltimore fire department spokesman Ian Brennan said the fire was reported around 4 a.m. in the 600 block of N. Carey St. in the Harlem Park neighborhood, with heavy fire showing from the rear of the building when firefighters arrived. The fire also damaged the two adjacent rowhouses, one which was occupied and the other vacant.

Brennan said the fire took more than two hours to get under control because firefighters were unable to enter the vacant structures to attack it. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
