Fire burns infant and harms two others in McElderry Park

A fire broke out in a two-story home Friday morning burning an infant and sending two others to the hospital.

Just after 11 a.m., about 10 fire crews responded to 435 Monford Ave., in the McElderry Park neighborhood, and put out a fire within 10 minutes that was contained to one room.

An adult and a child in the home suffered smoke inhalation and were taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital. An infant, also in the home, suffered burns but Baltimore fire spokesman Kevin Cartwright did not know the degree of the burns or where the child was taken for medical care.

Fire officials did not release the names of those injured. The cause of the fire remains under investigation, Cartwright said.
