Church partially collapses in East Baltimore

No injuries after an East Baltimore church partially collapses Tuesday, fire department says.

An East Baltimore church partially collapsed Tuesday morning, a city fire department spokeswoman said.

Firefighters were called at 11:18 a.m. to the New Good Samaritan Baptist Church at 2406 Greenmount Avenue in the Barclay neighborhood, fire spokeswoman Blair Adams said.

No one was injured, and no one was inside at the time, she said.

The department is investigating what caused the collapse, and Adams could not say if the weather was a contributing factor.

State property records show the building covers 19,180 square feet. Adams said she did not have information about which area of the building collapsed or the extent of the damage.

At a number listed for the church, a man who identified himself as the pastor said he was unaware of the damage but that there were not church activities scheduled for Tuesday.
