More Than 65 Firefighters Battle A House Fire in Silver Spring

A house fire in Silver Spring on Saturday sent a woman in critical condition to the hospital.

At around 6:20 p.m. a single-family home on the 2500 block of Holman Avenue in Forest Glen Park was engulfed in flames. More than 65 firefighters were on the scene battling the fire.

The woman was rescued from the home and taken to the hospital in critical but stable condition said Pete Piringer, Montgomery County Fire and Rescue spokesman. FOX 5 DC reported that the woman was treated for smoke inhalation.

There were no smoke alarms found inside the home. Hoarding conditions made it difficult for the fire and rescue team to navigate through the home according to Piringer. He also said the fire originated in the kitchen but the cause is still under investigation
