A house fire in Eastern Baltimore County that left one woman severely burned Wednesday was ruled an arson, a fire department spokeswoman said.

The 47-year-old was taken to the burn unit at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center and treated for serious burns, said spokeswoman Elise Armacost.

Firefighters were called at about 10:45 a.m. to the 7900 block of E. Baltimore St. for the one-alarm fire.

The woman had been inside the bedroom when she was injured, Armacost said.

The investigation continues.
