BALTIMORE — Baltimore City Fire crews recovered a body from a burning vacant rowhome on Thursday morning.

That's according to officials from the Baltimore City Fire Union.

The fire started around 4:45am in the 2400 block of W. North Avenue in West Baltimore.

Flames quickly spread to three vacant buildings and one neighboring home that was occupied, prompting a second alarm to be called.

Residents inside that home were safely evacuated over concerns of smoke inhalation.

The body was found shortly after as crews worked to get control of the fire. It's unclear now if the person's death was directly related to the fire.
