UPDATE:

4:47 p.m.
Five firefighters were injured Wednesday afternoon while trying to extinguish a blaze at a vacant house in Clinton, authorities said.

The fire broke out about 11:30 am at a vacant home in the 8300 block of Anaio Court, said Mark Brady, a spokesman for the Prince George's County Fire/EMS Department. Four firefighters sustained minor burn injuries and one had a leg injury, officials said.

All were treated and released.

It is unclear what caused the blaze, though Brady said it it "suspicious" because it started in a vacant home.
