OXFORD, Md. (WJZ) — Three people were injured in a house fire in Talbot County on Saturday afternoon.

Firefighters were called to the 4800 block of Evergreen Road around 2:22 p.m. for a reported fire.

When firefighters arrived, they found a two-story, single-family home fire.

It took crews about one hour to contain the fire.

One firefighter sustained a hand injury and was taken to an area hospital for treatment before being released.

A 13-year-old boy suffered superficial burns to his arm and hand while rescuing a 64-year-old woman from the home. He was also taken to an area hospital for treatment and later released.

The 64-year-old woman suffered second and third-degree burns to about 10 percent of her body. She was taken to Bayview Burn Center to receive treatment.

There was an estimated $325,000 worth of damage to the home and its contents.

The preliminary cause of the fire was accidental as a result of smoking while on home oxygen.
