2 in East Baltimore injured when house porch collapses

January 25, 2010

Two people were injured Sunday when the porch on a house in the Coldstream-Montebello-Homestead community collapsed, said a spokesman for the city Fire Department. Their names were not released. Shortly after 6 p.m., a man and a woman standing on the rear porch of a house in the 2000 block of E. 32nd St. fell about six feet to the ground when the porch suddenly collapsed, Capt. Roman Clark said. Clark said the pair suffered undetermined injuries and were taken by ambulances to Maryland Shock Trauma Center as a precaution. Clark said the owner of the property would be responsible for repairing the collapsed porch.
