HAMPSTEAD, Md. (WJZ) — A Carroll County woman was taken to Shock Trauma for smoke inhalation exposure after a house fire.

The fire broke out around 6:30 p.m. on Monday night on Gaming Square in Hampstead.

Firefighters said a lithium battery inside a moon lamp began to smoke, then sparked a small fire.

The two homeowners managed to put it out before firefighters arrived.

One woman, however, was having difficulty breathing because of smoke exposure.
