CROWNSVILLE, Md. — A two-alarm house fire Monday evening in Crownsville sent a 75-year-old man to a hospital with life-threatening injuries and displaced three other residents, county fire officials said.

Firefighters were dispatched to the 1300 block of Generals Highway shortly before 6:30 p.m. The first units to arrive reported smoke coming from the rear of the single-story home, fire department spokesman Division Chief Michael Cox said.
