Open Space, one of Baltimore’s most-treasured arts spaces, was hit with a two-alarm fire last evening. We’re glad to report that, aside from a firefighter who was sent to the hospital with minor injuries, no one was seriously hurt, and the living and music-recording spaces suffered minimal damage. One resident’s pet pot belly pig is also fine. The fire was mostly confined to the auto body shop that shares the building with Open Space; no word yet as to the damage there.
Anyone who wants to help Open Space deal with the fire’s aftermath is welcomed to stop by the building (2720 Sisson Street) today before 5 PM armed with “trash bags, boxes, moving supplies of any kind, transportation, storage, and… helping hands.”
