Panic In Downtown Baltimore As Police Discover A Van Loaded With Over 1,000 Gallons Of Gasoline Prompting Immediate Inner Harbor Evacuations

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Baltimore police discovered a van loaded with 1,000 gallons of gasoline Monday morning and are evacuating several office buildings from the Inner Harbor — where emergency officials are urging people to stay away, city council members confirmed.

Panic gripped the city of Baltimore as just a few hours ago as police made the shocking discovery of an abandoned van containing over 1,000 gallons of gasoline. Mass evacuations over a 4 square mile radius were immediately conducted, with the net effect of most of downtown Baltimore effectively being shut down.

This is a breaking story and we will keep you updated as events progress.

Inner Harbor buildings evacuated in downtown Baltimore after vehicle found with 1,000 gallons of gasoline

FROM THE BALTIMORE SUN: The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is assisting Baltimore police on the scene. A police spokesperson said they received a call at 11:02 a.m. about a suspicious van and began evacuating 100 E. Pratt St., which houses T. Rowe Price and and global professional services firm PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Baltimore Police Col. Sheree Briscoe told City Council members that they are evacuating a four-block radius around 100 East Pratt St. and are asking the community to not travel to that area while the police investigate.

Some 80 minutes after the car was reported, emergency crews began expanding the evacuations zone around the Inner Harbor to include The Gallery shopping mall, the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace and Brookshire Suites hotels. Around 1:30 p.m., 22 Light Street was evacuated.

The Baltimore City Department of Transportation is asking everyone to avoid Lombard, Pratt, Calvert and Light streets downtown as investigations continue.

Baltimore’s Inner Harbor area across from the building was scattered with people dressed in business clothes after the evacuation. Many were clustered together talking, wondering aloud about what’s going on. One woman said many people were just using this time to take their regular lunch hour. Several people walked up to crime scene tape, trying to get a view of what’s going on in the several block radius.

Erik Williams was working at his desk inside 814 Light St. when his Human Resources director came up and told him there was an emergency on Pratt Street. The 25-year-old was curious to know what was going on so he and a friend decided to grab lunch in the area. But now, they can’t get back to their office because it’s part of the crime scene. Williams said the incident is also a “coincidence” for how close it falls to the anniversary of Sept. 11.

“It’s a little overwhelming and certainly concerning,” said Williams, who works in Exelon’s human resources department. READ MORE

When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations. All this is possible because YOU pray for us, YOU support us, and YOU give so we can continue growing.



But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 13,131 people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 151,781 followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 14,500 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.

      One ton of gas. But the volume indicates it would take at least a mid sized moving van or a straight truck to haul it. Something wrong with this information?
