Baltimore Fire launches program to mark unsafe vacant buildings with red signs

October 25, 2022

Months after three Baltimore firefighters died in a vacant rowhouse fire, the Baltimore Fire Department launched a program Monday to mark hundreds of unstable vacant buildings as unsafe to enter. Fire Chief Niles Ford, along with city officials including Mayor Brandon Scott, led firefighters in attaching 12×12 red reflective square signs to unsafe vacant properties in Mount Clare, the neighborhood where Lt. Paul Butrim, Lt. Kelsey Sadler and firefighter/paramedic Kenny Lacayo died fighting a Jan. 24 fire in a three-story vacant home on Stricker Street.
