Firefighter hurt battling warehouse fire

BALTIMORE (WMAR) - A firefighter was injured in a massive warehouse fire in Baltimore City early Saturday morning.

The fire broke out around 11:00 p.m. Friday night at 2310 Chesapeake Avenue.

The building houses welding supplies and heavy machinery.

Roman Clark, spokesperson for the Baltimore City Fire Department, says water pressure was a problem for firefighters.  The obstacle made fighting the flames extremely labor intensive, Clark added.

A firefighter suffered minor injuries and has since been treated and released from an area hospital.

It took crews nearly five hours to get the fire under control.  

Fire investigators are looking into what may have sparked the fire.
