Baltimore continued to burn well into the night Monday after unprecedented violence sparked by the death of a 25-year-old man who died after being injured in police custody. Here firefighters work to contain one of several fires. This one had spread to neighbouring structures. Ronald Holcombe has lived in this neighborhood for 66 years. (SOUNDBITE) (English) RESIDENT RONALD HOLCOMBE SAYING: "Absolutely stupid. They should not be doing things like.... you know, there's no reason for it. They set a fire around the corner and ignited these roofs going through the building- through this block. Its a shame." The unrest came hours after the funeral for Freddie Gray, who was arrested earlier this month. He suffered injuries and later died while in police custody. Pharmacies, shopping malls, liquor and convenience stores have been looted. Governor Larry Hogan has declared a state of emergency and called in the National Guard. Schools will be shut on Tuesday and a mandatory curfew has been imposed.
