Toddler Fatally Injured in Taneytown FireMarch 23, 2017
A toddler was fatally injured in a house fire on Wednesday afternoon in Taneytown, Carroll County, Maryland. Around 3:45 pm a fire started in the attic of the house where the toddler and an older child were playing. The mother of both children and the older child escaped from the fire. Unfortunately, no immediate escape route from the attic was accessible, and firefighters could not easily rescue the toddler. Investigators are not sure if the smoke detectors in the home were working or if the mother was at home when the fire began.
A fire can consume a home within minutes, causing massive damage to the house as well as burn injuries, smoke inhalation sickness, or even fatalities to occupants. Survivors of a house fire may end up homeless and experience mental distress from the incident.
