Fire officials said one person was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center with burn injuries. Everyone else was accounted for.
“There were several houses involved, so we don’t have an exact count, but we have talked to these homeowners, so we know everyone is accounted for that was at those houses,” Joppa-Magnolia Fire Co. Assistant Chief John Terrell said.
