Baltimore is asking residents to shelter in place due to a Level 3 hazmat situation


The Office of Emergency Management in Baltimore is asking residents in three zip codes to shelter in place because of an incident Monday, according to our affiliate WBFF.

According to Fox 45 in Baltimore, this is a Level 3 hazmat situation which would involve extremely hazardous substances, according to Fox 45 reporter Kathleen Cairns.

Baltimore Fire Department is responding to the incident and says this happened at a business in the 3400 block of Fairfield Road in Brooklyn.

Employees from a nearby business told Fox 45 they could smell a strong and acidic aroma. Smoke could also be seen in the area.

The Office of Emergency Management says that residents in the zip codes 21060, 21225 and 21226 should "shelter in place, close windows & limit time outside."
