A mother and son were rescued early yesterday from the second floor of a burning rowhouse in East Baltimore.

Firefighters arrived in the 100 block of N. Port St. at 7: 50 a.m after receiving a call from a neighbor, said Battalion Chief Hector Torres.

Torres said the single-alarm fire was quickly contained.

Mary Anne Geiser, 34, was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, and her son, David Green, 10, was transported to Johns Hopkins Bayview. Both were listed in stable condition and were being treated for smoke inhalation.

Torres said the cause of the fire is under investigation and estimated the damage at $19,000.
