Southeast Baltimore House Fire Claims Life and Injures AnotherA house fire in southeast Baltimore claimed the life of one of the occupants and caused personal injuries for another occupant. On Monday morning, around 3 am, the fire started in a home on Bonsal Street. Apparently, the occupants were an elderly couple. An arson team was brought on the scene, which is standard procedure, according to officials.

House fires may begin due to faulty wiring in the home or a resident failing to extinguish a cigarette or turn off a burner on a stove. Victims may suffer from smoke inhalation sickness or sustain personal injuries in a fire or even be at-risk for fatalities. Survivors of a house fire may become displaced from their home, experience a loss of income, and face mental and emotional trauma due to the accident.
