PASADENA, MD - A house fire displaced three and hospitalized one last Friday in Pasadena, officials said.

A neighbor reported the blaze in the 1900 block of Cedar Road around 11:10 a.m.

First responders said they found the fire well underway at the two-story, single-family home.

Crews called for a tanker to supply water because there was no fire hydrant nearby.

A team of 69 firefighters said it controlled the flames in about 45 minutes.

Investigators think the fire started in the attached garage, but they're still trying to determine the cause.

Officials don't know if the house had working smoke detectors. They didn't estimate the dollar loss caused by the fire either.

Medics said they took one adult occupant to the University of Maryland Baltimore Washington Medical Center in Glen Burnie. That victim is listed in stable condition.

The displaced residents are two adults and one teenager, a press release said. The Anne Arundel County mobile crisis team responded to help them.

The Anne Arundel County Fire Department thanked these agencies for their assistance:

  • Annapolis Fire Department
  • Fort Meade Fire and Emergency Services
  • Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue Services

The Anne Arundel County Police Department was also on the scene.
