“The Baltimore City Fire Department arrived on the scene within 5 minutes and had the fire completely out within an hour,” said councilman Zeke Cohen. “A neighbor ran into one of the homes and attempted to pull out an elderly woman.”

Firefighters rescued two adults, who were taken to an area hospital with serious injuries.

“It looked like gigantic sparklers in the back of the house and then you saw the smoke and the flames coming through,” a neighbor told WJZ.
