At approximately 4 p.m. Tuesday Harford County 911 call takers received a report of an apartment fire in the 1000 block of Magnolia Woods Lane in the Edgewood community.
As units from the Joppa-Magnolia, Abingdon, Bel Air Volunteer Fire Companies and the Aberdeen Proving Ground (Edgewood Area) Fire Department were responding on the first alarm assignment, they were informed by dispatchers that there was a report also of a burn patient at the scene. Units from Joppa-Magnolia VFC arrived to find smoke showing from the three story apartment building, and a burn patient located at the front of the building.
As Joppa-Magnolia EMS personnel began to assess and treat the adult male patient, fire crews entered the building and located the third floor apartment where the kitchen fire had originated. With assistance of additional arriving fire personnel the fire was determined to be contained to the area where it originated. The building was checked for additional victims, extension of the fire beyond the apartment involved, and was ventilated of smoke.
The burn patient was transported by Joppa-Magnolia VFC ambulance to Johns Hopkins Bayview Burn Center in Baltimore for treatment. No additional injuries were reported. The Office of the Maryland State Fire Marshal was notified in relation to the burn victim. Last fire units cleared the scene at approximately 5:30 p.m.
