WASHINGTON — Authorities say firefighters rescued two people from a blaze in a southeast Washington rowhouse.
Fire crews were called to the home in the 400 block of 16th Street southeast early Wednesday morning and officials say they found heavy fire in the second-floor bedroom area.
The fire department says one person was taken to a hospital with critical injuries and the other has serious injuries that are not considered life-threatening. Officials say it is not yet clear what caused the fire.
Several streets in the area were closed as the morning rush began.
