A vehicle exploded Wednesday afternoon on the third floor of a Fells Point parking garage in Baltimore. Two people are being evaluated with non-life-threatening injuries.
The vehicle, described as a contractor’s work vehicle, exploded just after 3 p.m. at 805 S. Caroline St., causing a blast that shattered windows of the five-story parking garage, heard from buildings across the street.
Fire officials evacuated the parking garage and buildings within a one-block radius. There is no active fire. A third ambulance was requested to the scene Wednesday afternoon.
Camp counselor Celia Bowers was working across the street at Baltimore Urban Gardening for Students when they heard a loud boom.
“It was loud enough to be like, ‘Was that an explosion?’” Bowers said. Another camp counselor saw glass on the street after the blast, Bowers added. Parents with children at the camp arrived for an emergency pickup shortly after. A mother hugged her son behind yellow tape that roped off the parking garage.
