A woman and child were injured Friday morning in a house fire in Northeast Baltimore, authorities said.

The fire broke out at a two-story rowhome around 4 a.m. on the 3100 block of Ravenwood Ave., city fire department spokesman Kevin Cartwright said. The fire was under control around 4:48 a.m., he said. There was heavy smoke and fire on the home's first floor.

The child was taken to the Johns Hopkins Children's Center for evaluation, he said. The woman was taken to the burn center at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center to be treated for smoke inhalation and burns.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, Cartwright said. Officials do not yet know whether the home had working smoke alarms.
