UPDATE: At 8:37 AM Baltimore City Fire Department has another fire working in a two-story brick duplex at 603  East 41st Street. Listening to the link above, you could hear Howard County and Anne Arundel County units dispatched. (9:30 AM, fire on 41st Street under control.)

QUESTION FROM DAVE: Okay folks, help me on this one. It has been bugging me since just before 2:00 this morning when I went to bed (when this fire was at a second-alarm and they thought they had a handle on it). Was the building at 800 North Charles (Exposure B, on the corner) used for the exteriors of the 1987 movie, “The Bedroom Window”, or was it another Mt. Vernon address in the shadow of the Washington Monument? Let me know.


Chief Kevin Cartwright, spokesman for the Baltimore City Fire Department, says firefighters are battling the latest 5-alarm blaze in the 800 block of North Charles Street. Companies arrived on the scene early Tuesday morning and found a four story brick building fully engulfed in flames. Cartwright says the fifth alarm was called due to intense fire conditions, including flames shooting through the roof of the structure.

Cartwright says the building houses Donna’s Coffee Shop, a Tai Restaurant, and officers in the upper floors.

According to Cartwright, one firefighter suffered a minor knee injury while working to put out the flames. Another firefighter experienced chest pains at the scene. Both firefighters have been treated at the scene and transported to a local hospital for evaluation.
