Seagram's Property Scene of Another Fire

The abandoned former distillery on Sollers Point Road has had many fires in the recent past.

Baltimore County police and fire officials responded to a call at 7:47 p.m. Sunday about a fire at the former Seagram's property in Dundalk, authorities said.

First responders discovered a small fire in the sixth-floor elevator shaft of one of the abandoned buildings in the 7100 block of Sollers Point Road, according to Baltimore County Public Safety spokeswoman Louise Rogers-Feher.

Fire department personnel had no access to the fire because the building was "deemed too dangerous" to fight the fire from inside the structure, Rogers-Feher said.

The fire was brought under control at 9:35 p.m., according to an abc2news.com report.

The cause of the fire in unknown at this time, Rogers-Feher said on Monday.

if it was unsafe for fire fighters to be in the building should be condemned and Baltimore county should tear it down , what's it going to take to get it done , do we need to Waite for a Police officer or Fire fighter to be killed enough is enough take the buildings down already , One Person has lost his life this year on the property , I guess Vontran need to pay off some people in the county to get this done . How much money has the county already spent sending police and fire fighters to this place over the last 10 years ? I am sure its a lot , you have a high school and a middle school with in blocks of this place and the kids are always hanging in this place when they cut school and after school it is unsafe no matter what until people start to call and complain to the county they wont do anything . If you pay attention the only time things get done in Dundalk is when the Parade and the fair is here or it is a election year

The county should tear it down, But they should bill the owner for it not the taxpayers.

Blame it on the NIMBYs and obstructionists that keep delaying the project.
