Units went to the scene to investigate and discovered that there was an active fire inside the building so they immediately called for a full first alarm," Baltimore City Fire Department spokesman Ian Brennan said Dec. 27.
"The fire spread rapidly through the building and it quickly went from a second to a third alarm and eventually became a four-alarm fire. It wasn't brought under control until about five minutes after 11 a.m."
Brennan said that more than 100 firefighters were needed to knock down the fire, an effort which lasted well through a shift change at 7 a.m.
"Once they noticed the roof and the steeple were fully involved they pulled members of the fire department out," Brennan told the AFRO, adding that no firefighters or civilians were hurt in the incident.

Baltimore fire department spokesman Ian Brennan defended the department's response and said the first fire engine arrived in three minutes.
The victims have not yet been identified, but neighbors said they were a girl about 5 years old who attended nearby Curtis Bay Elementary School and a boy about 18 months old. The man killed was their father, who died trying to save his girlfriend and their children, neighbors said. Brennan said the woman who escaped was taken to the University of Maryland's Shock Trauma Center.
Brennan said the 911 call was dispatched at 4:05 a.m. and that Engine 57, which is stationed at a fire house a third of a mile away, arrived at 4:08.
"I understand that when someone is on the scene, 10 seconds feels like a minute and a minute feels like an hour," Brennan said. "I can't speak to what people say they saw. I don't have any indication that [firefighters] did anything other than their job."
Flames had spread to both floors when firefighters arrived, Brennan said, and the cause of the fire and whether the home had working smoke detectors is under investigation. Adjacent houses were severely damaged by smoke, fire and water and those residents were awaiting the arrival of a building inspector.
"The firefighters attacked it as aggressively as we could but sadly we couldn't save the three victims," Brennan said. The fire department may open an investigation into the response if a formal complaint is filed, Brennan said.
Neighbor Robin Gwin was crying as she watched firefighters work on the scene a few hours after the fire began. She woke up about an hour after the fire began but was upset about what her neighbors that witnessed the situation told her.
"Those kids were like my grandchildren," she said as her own children hugged her. "Are you kidding me?"
Gwin said firefighters told her the fire started in the home's kitchen, and she suspects it may have started with a faulty electrical system there. "Every time you go to plug something up, it would blow the breakers in the house," she said.
Faison's wife, Autumn, said she stayed with the children's mother after she had jumped to the ground, and later went to grab warm clothing for her before the ambulance arrived.

Brennan says more than 100 firefighters were still working to control the fire three hours after arriving, but the church's steeple was still intact.

The woman was taken to Harbor Hospital to be treated, said Ian Brennan, a Baltimore Fire Department spokesman.
The Baltimore Fire Department was called to the scene at 5:50 a.m. to help with the search, Brennan said. They used sonar to search the water, which he described as murky.

"Over the past few decades, through better engineering and better public education, we've been doing better," said Ian Brennan, the Baltimore Fire Department spokesman.
Six fire deaths this year resulted from careless smoking, Brennan said. Two were deemed homicides: men whose bodies were found in a burning Mount Vernon building.
