The Baltimore City Fire Department battled a three-alarm fire at a warehouse at 1200 Baylis St. in the Canton area late into the night Sunday, bringing it under control around midnight. Capt. Roman Clark, a department spokesman, said about 60 residents in the block were evacuated. No homes were involved in the fire, but heavy smoke and the fire's proximity to residences spurred the evacuation, said Chief Kevin Cartwright. An MTA bus was called to shelter residents. Power was also out in the immediate area.

Tonight's challenge: Simultaneously watch DWTS and the Ravens on Monday Night Football. Yikes! But challenge accepted. The action in the ballroom was far more impressive than the action on the ballfield, so that's what we'll focus on here. Had penalties been enforced on DWTS there might have been one called when it nearly came to fisticuffs between judge Len Goodman and pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy. It all started when Len called Hope Solo's rumba with partner Maks her worst dance of the whole season.

Mia helped the No. 11 Falcons, who have struggled with the draw at times this season, win the first eight of the second half to spark a nine-goal run and break the game open in a 14-7 victory over the previously unbeaten Owls.
