The former Kahn's meats plant at Spring Grove Avenue and Alabama Avenue caught fire around 4:30 p.m. Thursday.
The fire was reported as a two alarm fire and was contained to the back and the inside of the building. There were no reports of any injuries in the fire.
Owner of the building, Joe Gorman, says there should not have been anyone in the building and there should not have been any reason for there to be a fire in the first place. Gorman is the Community Organizer for Camp Washington Community Board.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
