An early-morning three-alarm fire that heavily damaged Holland Manor, a Riderwood assisted-living facility, early Saturday morning resulted in more than a dozen staff and residents being evacuated from the building.

Twelve residents and staffers were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, according to WJZ-TV.

The historic home in the 800 block of Landrake Road had been known as Bush Manor for years. During the 1920s, it had been part of the estate of Baltimore-born silent movie star Francis X. Bushman, who starred in the 1926 classic "Ben Hur."

The fire is under investigation.
