About 23,000 gallons of hot asphalt spilled onto the base of a smokestack in a southeast Baltimore asphalt plant yesterday, starting a fire that sent black clouds of smoke skyward and brought a hazardous materials task force to the scene, the city Fire Department reported. No one was injured in the fire, which was reported about 3:15 p.m. at the GAF Materials Corp. plant at 1500 S. Ponca St., which makes asphalt roof shingles. The spilled asphalt was contained within a walled area made of bricks, the Fire Department said.
