Three adults rescued from house fire in Frederick

    Tuesday morning, three adults were rescued from a two-alarm house fire in Frederick, Md.

In the 400 block of East Patrick Street, just before 5:00 a.m, firefighters from the Frederick County Fire Department responded to a three-story vacant house fire. It was reported that the majority of the smoke was coming from the third floor of the house where all three adults were found and rescued from. 

A second alarm was called due to the out-of-control blaze of the fire which retrieved more help to the scene. 

The firefighters on scene said that the adults inside the house did not live there; they could be described as transitory with no home.

Out of the three adults, two left the scene without being treated by medical staff that had responded. The other adult was transported to a local hospital nearby, Frederick Health, with minor injuries from the fire. 

According to the Frederick County Fire Department, to extinguish the fire, it took about a half an hour with 75 firefighters with 27 pieces of fire apparatus. Hot spots were monitored Tuesday morning by fire crews on scene after the blaze was taken care of.

The cause of the fire is unknown and is under investigation by the Frederick County Fire Marshal’s Office. The specific location of the fire was closed for multiple hours after the scene to secure the area.
