Firefighters find body in vacant warehouse destroyed in blaze


Firefighters found a body in a vacant South Baltimore warehouse that was destroyed in a fire yesterday, said Battalion Chief Hector L. Torres.

He said the fire in the warehouse in the 1200 block of Ward St. was reported about 3 p.m. and extinguished in about an hour.

Torres said the body was taken to the state medical examiner's office for an autopsy and identification. "Vagrants used the empty warehouse for shelter," he said.
