LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Prince George’s County fire officials say a man was injured in a house fire in Fort Washington over the weekend.

Firefighters were called to the fire in the 9300-block of Old Palmer Road about 3 a.m. Sunday, and arrived to find smoke and fire coming from the back of the home. Officials say the occupant of the house was outside, suffering from minor burn injuries.

Fire officials say the man, who is in 60s, was taken to a burn unit for treatment and was listed in good condition.

Officials say investigators believe the fire started after a stove was left on accidentally.
