Two people were hospitalized for smoke inhalation Sunday after a mid-day house fire in Glen Burnie.

Anne Arundel County firefighters were called to a house in the first block of Harvard Road at about 2 p.m., and found a fire burning in the home's kitchen. It was quickly brought under control, said Battalion Chief Steve Thompson.

A 30-year-old man and a 3-year-old boy were taken to the University of Maryland's Shock Trauma Center for treatment for smoke inhalation in the hospital's hyperbaric chamber. Their names and conditions were not available, but Thompson described their injuries as serious but not life-threatening.

The fire's cause remained under investigation late Sunday.
