Bladensburg House Fire - Edmonston Road

Just after 9:00 am today firefighters were alerted to a house fire in the 5000 block of Edmonston Road in Bladensburg.  Firefighters arrived to find a 1-story single family home with smoke coming from the rear of the house.  Firefighters immediately initiated a search for any occupants and advanced hose lines to extinguish the fire.

All the occupants had self evacuated prior to the fire departments arrival.  Firefighters found a small fire in the basement kitchen that was quickly extinguished.  Two occupants, a female, 60ish years of age, and a toddler had been exposed to some smoke and were transported by ambulance to a hospital for evaluation of possible smoke inhalation.

The cause of the fire is accidental and attributed to cooking.  Fire loss estimates are about $2,000 and there was no need to displace the residents as the home is fit for occupation.
