The president of the Baltimore NAACP called for the resignation of two city housing officials and said that Mayor Brandon Scott “needs to either step up and lead or step aside” following a Thursday night fire at a vacant building that damaged the adjacent offices of the civil rights organization. Rev. Kobi Little said the blaze could have been avoided and was the result of the city failing to address dumping or to remediate or secure a vacant building at 2 West 26th St.
