Glenn Dale House Fire - Occupant Injured - UPDATED

A Glenn Dale resident sustained burn injuries after a fire ignited his house early this evening. Nearly 60 firefighters battled the house fire for about 1 hour before knocking down the bulk of the fire.
Fire/EMS units were dispatched around 7:30 pm, Thursday, to a single family home in the 7800 block of Northern Avenue.

First arriving units advised of heavy fire conditions throughout the house and initially attacked the fire from the safety of exterior positions.

An adult male home occupant, in his 50's, sustained burns to his upper body. He was transported by paramedics to a Burn Unit in "good" condition.  No other civilian or firefighter injuries were reported.

The structure and contents are a total loss. Fire loss is estimated at $150,000.  The cause of the fire is under investigation.
