A peanut factory in Southwest Baltimore caught fire on Tuesday in Southwest Baltimore. Officials said people with nut allergies should take extra precaution as a result.

Just after noon, a peanut hopper was reported on fire at the Barcelona Nut Company, located in the 500 block of Fulton Ave. near Carroll Park. The company, which was founded in 1924, makes snack foods that are shipped globally.

The fire prompted officials to warn people with nut allergies to be “extra cautious” if they were in the area.
