Md. Firefighter Injured in Collapse

ROCKVILLE, Md. -- A firefighter was injured early Saturday while fighting a blaze in a Rockville home that caused more than $1 million in damage and displaced three adults.

Assistant Chief Scott Graham of Montgomery County Fire and Rescue said 70 firefighters were dispatched at 12:36 a.m. to 10107 Lakestone Place. Firefighters found heavy fire on the second floor and going through the roof.

A female firefighter suffered minor injuries when a ceiling collapsed, and she was transported to a local hospital.

Firefighters were forced to evacuate the home and fight the two-alarm blaze from outside.

The Red Cross assisted the three displaced adults.
