BALTIMORE — A man is dead after a three alarm fire at a fuel facility in Curtis Bay.

Fire crews were called Monday around 7am to Petroleum Management, Inc. on Curtis Avenue in South Baltimore, which is close to the Anne Arundel County line.

Four employees were working outside when the fire erupted at the complex.

One worker caught on fire, but the conditions made it difficult for the others to help.

That employee, identified as 52-year-old Earnest Cooper, died on scene.

The fire could be seen for miles. One viewer sent us video from the Curtis Creek Drawbridge, which can be viewed by clicking here.

No word yet on what caused that fire.
