Fatal fire in Temple Hills

By Washington Post editors

A man has died as a result of a fire Saturday morning in Temple Hills.

Officials from the Prince George's County Department of Fire and EMS said the fire occurred at about 5:30 a.m. in the 2700 block of Fairlawn Street.

Firefighters found a working fire in a 2-story, brick-style, single-family dwelling.

Firefighters made an aggressive interior attack and during their searches found an adult male inside. EMS personnel provided advanced life support care and transported the patient to an area hospital in critical condition. The man has since died.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Officials have not released the name of the victim.

I'm really sad about what happen to my friend Reinaldo., he is from Puerto Rico, I lived in that house for two years! and the last time that I saw him was one week and a half ago when I took him to mcdonald for some food and drinks.
God bless him and take him with him.
