BALTIMORE — Fire spread across a southwest Baltimore neighborhood Friday afternoon, escalating to five alarms before firefighters put it out.
Twelve rowhomes were damaged, leaving two families homeless.
No civilians were injured, but a firefighter was taken to a hospital and is expected to be OK.
The fire was quite the sight to see and had residents talking.
“Just seen, you know, it’s a lot of smoke, got them flames, those flames was really high,” said Amanda, a Carrollton Ridge resident.
Many neighbors in Carrollton Ridge saw the fire spread to multiple rowhomes on multiple streets.
“It jumped from another house because it was fire on Fulton and it jumped, I guess, to the roof on one of the houses on my block,” Raymond, a Carrollton Ridge resident.
“I just saw the big flame (it) was smoke in the air, black smoke in the air, so I just came outside and saw the fire and I walked down the street and saw another fire,” a Carrollton Ridge resident.
