Teenager injured in D.C. rowhouse blaze

A teenager was hospitalized after being rescued from a burning rowhouse in far Southwest Washington Tuesday evening, officials said.

She was in serious condition from smoke inhalation after firefighters found her about 7 p.m. in the house in the 4000 block of First Street SW, said fire department spokesman Pete Piringer.

Two other occupants of the house were also taken to hospitals, Piringer said, and a firefighter suffered a leg injury in combating the fire, which broke out in the Washington Highlands area.

The cause of the fire was under investigation, Piringer said.
