Around 20 officials are at the scene, according to WBALTV 11.

Pugh announced April 1 she would be on an indefinite leave of absence due to pneumonia. Her statement came as she was embroiled in a fiasco over her self-published “Healthy Holly” books.

The 69-year-old mayor is under investigation by the Maryland Office of the State Prosecutor after selling her books to University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS) for $500,000 while on the system’s board.

Baltimore City Council members called on Pugh to resign in an April 8 letter. Pugh’s office said she “fully intends” to return to her position, The Baltimore Sun reported.
