WBAL reports that the fire spread to a neighboring church and smoke could be seen from Interstate 83.
Fire officials say no injuries were reported in the blaze. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
Budeke’s main location has been on South Broadway since 1868. The shop expanded over the years and spread across six adjoining buildings, including a church, according to their website. Fells Point is a national historic district.
