BALTIMORE — Six firefighters were hurt Wednesday while battling a house blaze.
The Baltimore Sun reported that the firefighters were entering the house to control the two-alarm fire when they suffered burns on their hands, arms and face, according to officials.
Officials said they aren’t sure how exactly the firefighters were burned. One of the firefighters suffered second-degree burns, but all are expected to be OK.
Fire department spokesperson Blair Adams said there was heavy fire and smoke when firefighters arrived at the scene. One person escaped without injury, and the fire was under control about an hour after it was reported.
