Here’s a snippet from my coverage on the Charles Village Pub that closed Towson streets and brought more than 100 firefighters to the area. To read the full article, go to The Towerlight online.

Crowds of bar patrons attempting to visit Charles Village Pub on Saturday instead stood across the street and watched as clouds of smoke billowed from the Towson hotspot instead.

A two-alarm fire closed CVP around 7:30 p.m., along with many nearby streets and local businesses.

Fire crews from departments including Parkville, Lutherville and Cockeysville were on the scene shortly after the fire was reported and were there throughout the night to put out the blaze, according to Baltimore County fire director Lynn Mullahey.

“There is extensive damage from the fire,” Mullahey said.

The fire started in the bar’s kitchen. As of Sunday, Baltimore County fire investigator Andrew Schlegel said the specific cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Representatives from the fire department and CVP have yet to comment on the establishment’s condition and if and when it may re-open.

According to Mullahey, the two-alarm fire brought at least 25 various machines to Pennsylvania Avenue, with about 100 firefighters on the scene.

“It’s a very intense fire because it led to other exposures,” Mullahey said. “We’re making sure that the fire has not spread to other buildings.”

In addition, here is a video our video editor and myself put together. I spent about three hours on the scene before calling it a night and heading to the office to write-up the story.
