  • Three people hurt in fire on West Side Avenue
    Posted On: Nov 19, 2014

    Three people were taken to Meritus Medical Center to be treated for injuries they suffered Wednesday morning during a fire at an apartment building at 349 West Side Ave. in Hagerstown, a fire official said.

    One of the victims who was taken to the hospital jumped from a second-floor apartment where the fire started, according to Battalion Fire Chief Mark Cleck.

    "I don't know the extent of the injuries," Cleck said at the scene.

    He said heavy smoke was coming from the second floor when firefighters arrived shortly after 6 a.m.

    Firefighters knocked the fire down in about 10 minutes and were able to contain the flames to the apartment of origin, Cleck said.

    He said the cause was being investigated.

    All three people who were taken to the hospital lived in the apartment where the fire started, Cleck said.

    He said the freezing temperatures didn't hinder efforts to open up fire hydrants.

    "That's usually never an issue," he said.

    Firefighters were called to the same block of West Side Avenue at 3 a.m. Wednesday for a report of a malfunctioning furnace, Cleck said.

    He said this is the time of year — when temperatures dip below freezing — that people use alternative heating sources to stay warm.

    Cleck suggested that residents have their furnaces serviced and use caution when using space heaters or other heating devices to prevent house fires.
