January 27, 2013

Baltimore City fire officials say no one was injured in a blaze at a vacant house on West Franklin Street in the city late Saturday night.

Firefighters responded to the house around 11:55 p.m. Saturday night, officials said. Upon arrival, companies found heavy fire on all three floors of a vacant house in the 1100 block of W. Franklin Street. 

Firefighters began working the blaze, but officials said holes in the floors on upper levels created unsafe conditions, and responders were ordered to evacuate.

Crews continued working outside the building, and within an hour, companies had the fire extinguished with no reported injuries to firefighters or civilians. The fire was declared under control at 1:18 a.m.

Officials said the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
