MANASSAS, Va. (AP) — A town house fire in Virginia has injured three people, including two firefighters rescued after calling mayday while battling the blaze.
Media outlets report that fire broke out early Thursday at a town house in Manassas.
Prince William County Fire Department spokesman Battalion Chief Thomas Jarman says crews arrived to find fire showing from a two story middle-of-the-row townhome.
Two firefighters who went into the burning building called mayday and were pulled from the structure. The firefighters and a third person were taken to a hospital with minor burns that aren’t considered life-threatening.
Officials say six homes were damaged and 12 residents and their pets were displaced. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
