At approximately 3:42 p.m. on Saturday, February 10, 2024, the Frederick County Emergency Communications Center dispatched a call for a reported building fire in the 100 block of S Carroll Street. Frederick County Division of Fire and Rescue units arrived within two minutes to find a 2-story building with smoke showing and quickly requested a Rapid Intervention Dispatch. Crews began working immediately to conduct a search within the building and to get water on the fire. As conditions worsened, they requested a second, and subsequent third alarm. With assistance from the Frederick Police Department the immediate area was cleared and closed to traffic. The historic building was comprised of an antique store, an apartment, and was used for storage. The building was connected by an elevated walkway to a building across the street. With an aggressive defensive fire attack crews were able to keep the fire from spreading to any other buildings.
It took 120 firefighters approximately 90 minutes to place the fire under control and an additional 2 hours to extinguish all remaining hotspots and perform overhaul. The building was unoccupied at the time of the fire and there were no civilian injuries. Two firefighters sustained minor injuries and transport was not required. Frederick City Police, Frederick County Division of Emergency Management, Frederick City Emergency Management, and Frederick City Mayor, Michael O’Connor were on the scene monitoring the incident. The Frederick County Fire Marshal’s Office is currently on the scene investigating and S Carroll Street remains closed as of 9:30pm.
