Five firefighters fell into the basement of a burning home in Deale, Maryland this afternoon. Anne Arundel County Fire Department Division Chief Michael Cox tells that a ladder placed through the h*** of the collapsed first floor into the basement by a rapid intervention crew allowed three of the firefighters to get out on their own. Chief Cox says they were not hurt.

According to Cox, two other firefighters from Anne Arundel County, one career and one volunteer, had to be removed by firefighters. One of those firefighters was flown to Medstar in the District of Columbia with serious, but non-life threatening trauma.

The second firefighter went to Calvert Memorial Hospital in Prince Frederick with relatively minor injuries.

Anne Arundel County firefighters were dispatched to the house fire in the 5800 block of Little Road with crews from Calvert and Prince George’s County shortly after 1:30 PM.
