A 7-year-old boy is dead and a second child is in critical condition after a fire inside a West Baltimore row home Monday morning.
A family member tells ABC2 News the critically injured child tried to save his two younger siblings from the burning home.
Before 2 a.m. Monday, Baltimore City firefighters were called to the 300 block of North Bruce Street.
When they arrived they found heavy smoke coming from a row home. Six people -- three children and three adults -- were inside the house when the fire broke out, according to fire department spokesman, Ian Brennan.
Fire officials say 7-year-old Sean McCullough died as a result of injuries sustained in the fire.
Neighbors tell ABC2 News the 8-year-old child, who is in critical condition at Johns Hopkins, dropped his 4-year-old sister out of a second-story window into the arms of family members or neighbors below then went back for his 7-year-old brother.
The youngest child is doing well and is with her family.
One firefighter also sustained minor injuries while fighting the fire, Brennan said.
