    Ft. Meade Building Fire Hits Five Alarms

    Mike Perry Sky Eye Chopper 13

    (WJZ) Ft. Meade, MD WJZ.COM has learned of a five-alarm fire in Ft. Meade.

    Firefighters have evacuated the office building amid fears the building could collapse.

    Smoke from the burning building could be seen from as far as Southern Baltimore.

    Officials say they do not know why the military building at 4554 Llewellyn Avenue caught fire. They do say, however, the building is not actively used by the military.

    Military fire crews along with the Ft. Meade Fire Department, Anne Arundel County Fire Department, and Prince George's County Fire Departments are working together to fight the flames.

    As of early Friday evening, the only injury reported was a minor leg wound on a firefighter. Officials on the scene do think heavy winds are contributing to the spread of the fire.
