One person was rescued from a house fire at 120 E. Timonium Rd. and taken to the burn unit at Bayview Medical Center, according to Baltimore County Fire Dispatch.
Twenty pieces of firefighting equipment were dispatched around 12:30 p.m. after a call was made to 911, Lt. Jay Ringgold said. The caller was disconnected while trying to escape the house.
Lutherville Volunteer Fire Company and Texas Career Station located and rescued the woman, although excessive hoarding hampered the rescue attempt, Ringgold said.
The fire was called under control around 1 p.m., officials said.
The victim is in serious condition and the cause of the fire is under investigation, officials said.
