Chillum House Fire Injures Firefighter

Firefighters and medics from the Chillum Fire/EMS Station and other departments from surrounding communities, including Montgomery County, fought a house fire today at about 2:30 pm. Firefighters arrived and found a 2-story home in the 6800 block of Chillum Manor Road with fire showing from the both floors and roof. It required 30 minutes for 35 firefighters to knock down the bulk of the fire.

One firefighter, a member of the Riverdale Fire/EMS Station, was transported to a Burn Unit and has been admitted for observation of injuries sustained from an electrical shock. One civilian was also transported to an area hospital for possible heat related illness.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
