Two D.C. firefighters and a Southeast Washington resident were sent to the hospital Wednesday night after they inhaled toxic fumes inside the resident’s home, D.C. fire officials said.

Firefighters were dispatched for a medical call in the 2300 block of Good Hope Road about 6:45 p.m., and about 30 minutes later the firefighters called for a Hazmat unit, said Timothy Wilson, a D.C. fire and emergency service department spokesman. The firefighters encountered a mixture of pesticides that produced fumes inside the home.

Two firefighters and a resident of the house, who was not identified by age or gender, were taken to a hospital with injuries that were not life threatening, Wilson said.
