A fire heavily damaged a large section of the vacant Seagram's distillery in Dundalk last night.

The fire -- which involved nearly two alarms' worth of equipment -- was under control around 2 a.m., but BCoFD crews remain on scene, working to ensure that the fire is completely extinguished.

No injuries have been reported.

Crews were dispatched at 10:02 p.m. to a building fire at Sollers Point Road and Delvale Avenue. First-arriving units found heavy fire showing from the fourth floor of the building; they and additional crews fought the fire from the outside.

The fire caused a partial collapse of the building, including the roof. This collapse made the property unsafe for Baltimore County Police fire investigators to conduct an on-scene investigation; the cause of the fire is undetermined.

The CSX railroad tracks adjacent to the Seagram's building were shut down for safety as a result of the fire.

About 20 pieces of fire equipment responded to this incident.

The driver of the truck involved in a single-vehicle crash in Dundalk early yesterday morning is identified as Elier Rocha Jaquez (27) of the 800 block of Shipfriend Road in Middle River.

The Baltimore County Crash Investigation Team continues to investigate the cause of this crash.
