The fire at piers 8 and 9 of the
Baltimore and Ohio Railroad at
Baltimore, where large quantities of
munitions and supplies for the Ameri
can forces In France were stored, is'

is substantiated by the fact that while
no explosives were stored on the pier,
"six distinct explosions, which shot
off the roof like rockets" were seen
shortly after the Are began.
