One dead, one injured in Oxon Hill fire
Prince George's Fire and EMS say one person was found dead following a Monday morning fire in Oxon Hill.
During an initial sweep of the house, fire officials did not find any occupants. But during a second search, they discovered an adult man dead in the basement, said Mark Brady a fire department spokesman. Brady said rescue workers believe he had "a mobility issue."
The man lived in the home with his caretaker, a woman in her 30s, who escaped the fire but suffered smoke inhalation and a fractured leg, he said. The house, a single-family home, was severely damaged.
Officials say the fire started in the basement of the house, but the cause of the blaze is still under investigation.
