Fire burns through the vacant Pemco warehouse in southeast Baltimore City. The 2-story brick structure, which was about to be demolished, once housed a porcelain factory. Nearly fifty firefighters were called to the scene at Eastern Ave. & Bayard Blvd. No fatalities were reported, however several streets in the area were closed. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Baltimore Post-Examiner is run by a creative cadre of dedicated journalists – some who worked at the Washington Post, Baltimore Examiner and other regional and national publications. It’s the Post-Examiner because we love the play on the word “Post” but we are also hoping to answer that question: What’s next after newspapers? We see a lot of websites come and go – and many simply are not making it for various reasons. We have been a model of success since we launched in 2012 with “a little bit of everything” and we aim to continue to break that cycle of websites coming and going.
