Two Baltimore Firefighters Hurt While Battling House Fires

Two Baltimore City firefighters suffered injuries while battling fires over the weekend, reports WBAL TV 11.

Authorities said the most recent fire happened in an occupied rowhome just before 9 a.m. Sunday in the 1500 block of Cliftview Avenue near Clifton Park.

Crews were able to put the fire out in about 90 minutes, but not before one of the firefighters suffered a minor injury, fire officials said.

Another firefighter was injured while battling flames in the southwest part of the city around 5 p.m. Saturday.

Fire officials said that fire happened on South Monroe Street, just a few blocks north of Wilkens Avenue, and was at least the third reported fire that day.

The firefighter injured in that incident is expected to recover from non-life-threatening injuries.

Officials are still trying to figure out what caused the fires.
