KINGSVILLE, Md. - Baltimore County firefighters battled a fire at the old Belko Company complex Monday.
Authorities say the two-alarm blaze started at the bottom of an elevator shaft on one of the old abandoned factory buildings at the intersection of Jericho Road and Woodberry Place.
As fire crews were familiar with the building due to previous fires, they only fought the fire as an external operation, and no one went inside due to the instability of the building.
The fire was contained in about an hour, however, the fire rekindled twice throughout the night.
Units were back on the scene today attempting to extinguish another fire, and they have requested the owner to respond with heavy equipment to assist in dismantling the building, however, one problem they are running into is that the building is a historical site and can not be demolished.
Officials are trying to find a solution to that problem.
The cause and origin of the fire is still under investigation.
