The plant and its container caught fire and fell onto a deck shortly after 2 p.m. Sunday, according to a report in the Frederick News Post.

About 20 firefighters responded to the blaze in the 5700 block of Chase Court. It was extinguished in about 10 minutes and one was injured, according to the News-Post.
