A 9-year-old East Baltimore boy was rescued yesterday by his godfather from a rowhouse where a third-floor bedroom was in flames, police and fire officials said.
Carlos Woods, of the 900 block of N. Broadway, told police and fire officials that after he was awakened to go to school, he went back to sleep. Meanwhile, his father, Charles Woods Sr., had gone to a hardware store.
The boy reported that when he awoke about 11:30 a.m., another bedroom on the third floor was on fire.
About that time, Carlos' godfather, Vincent Blount, 35, of the 900 block of McDonogh St., arrived at the house to help the child's father with some work.
