There is mutual aid from all over Maryland and the District of Columbia helping the Baltimore City Fire Department deal with the many fires that have occurred since yesterday (Monday) afternoon (see tweets below). Below, are also links to watch and listen live as events unfold today.
We have multiple videos that were posted yesterday showing some of the fires as they occurred including video showing a rioter cutting a fire hose as the first structure broke out (Click here). More videos will be added today on this page.
And what may be the best video of the yesterday is below. It shows a mother beating the crap out of her young son for participating in the initial disturbance at Mondawmin Mall.
The Baltimore mayor’s office says there were 144 vehicle fires, 15 structures fires and nearly 200 arrests in the unrest that broke out in the city.
Spokesman Howard Libit gave the updated numbers Tuesday morning.
Rioting erupted around the city Monday, hours after the funeral for Freddie Gray. The 25-year-old died of a spinal injury days after being taken into police custody.
National Guard troops took up positions in the city, and cleanup was beginning early Tuesday morning.
