HALETHORPE, Md. - A Baltimore County firefighter was injured in an early-morning two-alarm blaze in Halethorpe.
Crews arrived on the scene at 1 a.m. following a report of a fire at a home on the 2000 block of Hammonds Ferry Road. When firefighters arrived, there was fire showing through the roof of a building. Shortly after crews began extinguishing the fire with interior operations a Mayday was called for a firefighter in distress.
A second-alarm was then called and the firefighter was located and removed form the building. The firefighter was transported to Shock Trauma, with non-life threatening injuries. After the firefighter was located and removed from the dwelling the second alarm equipment was canceled.
The fire was placed under control at 2 a.m. and the cause and origin of the fire is still under investigation.
Baltimore County fire officials confirmed that the injured firefighter has already been released from the hospital.
