An­napo­lis tour firm will re­open in spring af­ter fire

Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND WORLD -

The An­napo­lis build­ing where Pi­rate Ad­ven­tures op­er­ates caught fire Mon­day. Fire­fight­ers ar­rived about 6:30 a.m. to the East­port neigh­bor­hood to find flames and smoke com­ing from the roof. Own­ers Mike and Emily To­masini re­ceived a phone call from a friend in­form­ing them of a fire in the area. Pi­rate Ad­ven­tures pro­vides tours for fam­i­lies on its pi­rate ship from April through Oc­to­ber. The fire brought around 60 fire­fight­ers from the city, as well as the Naval Academy and Anne Arun­del County, to the 300 block of Third St. Fire­fight­ers were able to con­tain the flames to the busi­ness, but an ad­join­ing build­ing also suf­fered smoke dam­age, city fire of­fi­cials said. One fire­fighter was treated for a mi­nor in­jury, de­part­ment of­fi­cials said. The cause of the fire re­mained un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion, said Bat­tal­ion Chief Aaron M. Bos­ton, a de­part­ment spokesman. In­ves­ti­ga­tors were still work­ing to de­ter­mine the ex­tent of the dam­age.
