PASADENA, Md. - It took more than 45 firefighters to get a townhome fire under control in Pasadena.
The first fire crew on the scene found heavy smoke in the basement of a home on the 7900 block of Della Rosa Ct. when they arrived Sunday night.
The crews immediately called for more help, and searched the interior of the building, then got the fire under control.
Crews found a 30-year-old male with burn injuries. That man was transported by helicopter to Hopkins with serious injuries not believed to be life-threatening.
There is an estimated $225,000 in damage. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
There was also a fire on the 6400 block of Wilben Road in Lithicum Heights Sunday night. Forty-eight firefighters responded to that blaze that also began in the basement of the home. A 54-year-old male and 51-year-old female were both examined for smoke inhalation injuries and were transported to Baltimore Washington Medical Center in Glen Burnie.
