Two firefighters were injured while working to extinguish a blaze in a vacant home in Better Waverly, a city fire spokesman said.
The firefighters responded to the 3000 block of Independence Street at about 8:30 a.m. Monday morning, said Chief Kevin Cartwright.
Their injuries were not life-threatening, he said. One was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma Center and the other to the Public Service Infirmary at Mercy Medical Center, Cartwright said.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
