Maryland Firefighters Battle 4-Alarm Warehouse Blaze

Dundalk, Md.-- WJZ.COM has learned most of the fire in a major warehouse in Dundalk, Baltimore County is out.

Sky Eye Chopper 13 was over the scene and Captain Mike Perry reports the fire is at the Henry Harvey Co. on Stansbury Road.

Perry also reported the warehouse houses wood cabinets, were a major contributor to the fire.

There is no word on injuries or cause at this time.

Baltimore County Fire Director James Korn says the fire department requested that Conrail shut down its rail line into Sparrows Point.

WJZ'S Dennis Edwards reports, some employees were working outside while others were working inside the building before it engulfed in flames.

Korn says it took about 120 firefighters about 45 minutes to contain the fire. He says as the first unit arrived, part of the building collapsed and the fire quickly grew to four-alarms.

Conrail closed its rail line into Sparrows Point while firefighters worked, but the line that passes by the scene was reopening around 8:45 p-m.

Because the building was so unstable, fire fighters had to attack the blaze from outside. He says there were no reports of people in the building and no injuries were reported.

Investigators are on the scene trying to determine what started the fire. Korn says some firefighters will probably stay on the scene for hours.
