A single-alarm fire last night in the 1500 block of Ramsay St. in South Baltimore forced a woman, four children and a neighbor to flee.
No injuries were reported.
The fire was believed caused by a malfunctioning lamp, police said.
Debby Pruitt, 34, said she and a neighbor were hanging pictures in her kitchen shortly before 2 a.m. when Mrs. Pruitt's son, Jason, 11, cried out from a third-floor front bedroom that there was a fire.
The mother of three said she and her children moved in Monday and have been unpacking boxes and setting up furniture.
