Firefighters battled a massvie three-alarm structure fire in downtown Frederick Saturday afternoon.
Crews could see the heavy smoke when they left their stations at 3:42 p.m.
They initiated an aggressive attack and did a quick primary search. The fire quickly spread to a walkway connected to another building.
Officers quickly called for a second-alarm, and as the fire intensified, they evacuated firefighters from the structure.
Later, a third alarm was requested to assist. Firefighters remained at the scene Saturday night hitting hotspots.
Two firefighters suffered minor injuries but did not require transport to a hospital, Frederick County Chief Tom Coe said.
