Two Baltimore Fire Trucks Collide


Eight fire crew members were hurt Tuesday in a collision of fire trucks.

Baltimore City Fire Department spokesman Kevin Cartwright said two trucks collided at about 12:45 p.m. at North Fulton Avenue and Edmondson Avenue.

Crews were responding to a vacant dwelling fire in the 1200 block of Mosher Street.

Two fire officers and two firefighters were taken to Shock Trauma for treatment, Cartwright told 11 News. Four others crew members were taken to the University of Maryland emergency room.

All but one of the crew members has been released, Cartwright said.

Officials said the fire reached two alarms and that no one else was injured.
