Two Baltimore firefighters were injured Sunday morning while battling a blaze that started when a propane tank exploded, officials said, bringing to six the number of city firefighters injured since Saturday afternoon.
The injuries were not considered serious, said Capt. Roman Clark, a fire department spokesman.
The city firefighters union Local 734 said on its Twitter page that firefighters were called to the 400 block of N. Luzerne St. at about 9:30 a.m. Sunday for an explosion on the rear porch of a row home. One firefighter was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center
for second-degree burns, and a second firefighter was also later transported there, they said.
Clark said the first firefighter was treated and released, and as of about noon the second firefighter was receiving treatment.
The injuries come after four firefighters were injured extinguishing a fire in the 400 block of S. Fulton Ave
. Two people died in that fire, and authorities said they were continuing to work to confirm the identities of the victims.
