Baltimore firefighter injured in rowhouse blaze

A city firefighter suffered a minor burn Sunday while battling a one-alarm blaze in East Baltimore, the fire department said.

The firefighter was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center for treatment, said Ian Brennan, a Baltimore fire department spokesman. No one else was injured.

The mid-morning fire spread to both floors of an occupied rowhome in the 1500 block of Cliftview Avenue, Brennan said. The agency is investigating the cause of the fire.
