A police officer was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center for possible smoke inhalation after Thursday afternoon apartment fire in Baltimore's Mid-Town Belvedere, a fire department spokesman said.

Two police officers responded to the unit block of West Biddle Street where a two-alarm fire broke out in the fourth floor of the building, fire department spokesman Cpt. Roman Clark said. The police entered the building to alert residents before firefighters arrived. One officer was later taken to the hospital, he said.

No other injuries were reported. The resident in the fourth-floor unit was displaced as a result of the fire, Clark said.

Clark did not know the officer's condition Thursday evening.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
