2 firefighters injured in house fire


LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Two firefighters were injured in a house fire that broke out in a Maryland suburb of Washington, D.C., authorities said.

The Washington Post reports that one of the Prince George’s County firefighters was being treated for significant burns and was in stable condition at a trauma center. The other injured firefighter was treated for minor burns, officials said.

The fire broke out around 4 a.m. in a two-story home in Landover. The residents escaped unharmed after a smoke detector alerted them, officials said.

The roof collapsed in the fire, which apparently started in an attached garage and caused an estimated $150,000 in damage to the home.
