Good afternoon. Numerous crews were fighting a fire Sunday at the Gilster-Mary Lee cake plant on 520 Old Saint Marys Rd. in Perryville.

According to Perryville Assistant Fire Chief William Jones, it was a minor fire but the building suffered some damage to 2 floors.

Christy Millweard also got reaction from firefighters who were dealing with trying to put out the fire and with extreme heat, as well.

A routine traffic stop and search Sunday resulted in 2 people facing meth related charges.
