A 24-year-old man was taken to the Johns Hopkins Bayview Burn Center with first and second degree burns on his hands and face, fire department spokesman Lt. Cliff Kooser said.

It took 31 firefighters about 15 minutes to put out the fire. Investigators were still trying to determine the cause of the fire Thursday evening, Kooser said. No damage estimate was available.
