Three boys and six adults — including a pair of on-duty police officers — were taken to hospitals following a house fire in Northeast Baltimore early Sunday, according to the Baltimore Fire Department.
The boys, ages 2, 5 and 9, and the six adults all were listed in stable condition after the fire in the 5100 block of Plainfield Ave. just before 1 a.m. Sunday, according to the Fire Department. Their names were not released.
“They mostly suffered smoke inhalation,” said Chief Roman Clark, a Fire Department spokesman.
The two police officers were injured while rescuing those inside the family home, he said. Both officers were released from the hospital later Sunday, said detective Chakia Fennoy, a Baltimore police spokeswoman.
