RANDALLSTOWN, Md. - Crews with the Baltimore County Fire Department battled a two-alarm fire at an apartment complex Friday morning during which one police officer was transported to a local hospital.
Officials say the fire on Debilen Circle at the Owings Chase Apartments was at a three-level structure. Residents reportedly became aware of the fire after noticing smoke in the hallway of the building.
The fire damaged six units in the dwelling, one of witch housed a mother and her 21-month-old son.
Witnesses on the scene tell ABC2 News that a landscaping crew sprung into action, put up a ladder, and helped rescue the child from a third story apartment.
The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
Officials say the officer's injuries are minor.
