One woman was taken to Bayview Burn Center.
A Hagerstown woman was taken to the Johns Hopkins Bayview Burn Center Wednesday following a house fire. City officials say Donna Delosier suffered burns to 15% of her body.
Fire fighters were dispatched to 110 North Cannon street at 9:55 AM, and saw heavy smoke coming from the basement. Crews evacuated the house because an interior attack was unsafe due to the amount of materials inside the home. A second alarm was called about 25-minutes later, and additional personnel were dispatched.
Authorities say Delosier got out of her home safely, but went back inside to rescue some of her pets. She was able to get two dogs out, but the rest of her animals are unaccounted for.
The fire also spread to the home next door, 112 North Cannon Street.
The last fire units cleared the scene at around 5:00 PM.
The Hagerstown Fire Marshal's Office will return to the home on Thursday to continue its investigation. The building is considered a total loss.
The Washington County Red Cross is providing assistance.
City officials say North Cannon Street between Franklin Street and Liberty Street will be closed until further notice. But local residents will be allowed access to their homes.
Assisting the Hagerstown Fire Department in battling this blaze were the Funktown Volunteer Fire Company, the Volunteer Fire Company of Halfway, Longmeadow Volunteer Fire Company, Williamsport Volunteer Fire Company, Maugansville Goodwill Fire Company, Washington County Air Unit, Washington County Rehab Unit, Special Operations, Community Rescue Service, and the Franklin Fire Company of Chambersburg, Pa. Numerous other companies transferred to Hagerstown City stations to provide coverage during the fire.
