Sections of Baltimore’s iconic Inner Harbor were evacuated Monday after a suspicious vehicle was discovered with 1,000 gallons of gasoline.
“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,” reports the Baltimore Sun.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms are responding to the incident.
“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,” adds the Sun.
